Fiction 1: Story Basics

from 50.00

This class is designed for people new to fiction writing. Perhaps you are a reader who would like to try your hand at being on the other side of the equation. Perhaps you have a story in your head and need a jumpstart to get it down on paper. Or maybe you’re a poet or a nonfiction writer who wants to dabble in fiction. In this workshop, we’ll consider the basic ingredients of fiction: characters, plot, setting, and dialogue, and we’ll experiment with putting those ingredients to work through fun writing prompts.
