Foundations of Fiction Workshop

This workshop allows new writers to begin exploring the craft, while also offering experienced writers access to the structure and motivation so critical for generating new work. Its approach is exercise-based, focused on generating new story “seeds,” honing voice, and developing a general understanding of the main elements of narrative craft such as character, setting, description, dialogue, and point of view.  Students read and discuss published work and share their own work at each class session. You’ll have the opportunity to revise one of the pieces you’ve written during the workshop and participate in a celebratory reading at the end of our workshop.
