Foundations of Fiction

Foundations of Fiction

from 279.00

Foundations is our popular beginner/multilevel workshop. The perfect vehicle for someone who’s very new to writing to begin exploring the craft, it also allows experienced writers to access the structure and motivation needed to generate new work. The workshop is exercise-based and focused on generating new story “seeds,” honing voice, and developing a better understanding of the elements of narrative craft. During class sessions, students will also read and discuss published work and may choose to share their own work.  You’ll have the opportunity to revise one of the pieces you’ve written during the workshop.
