Whether you’re new to fiction writing or want to recharge your writing practice, this class will help you generate new work. Together we’ll take a close look at some of the building blocks of good prose fiction: character, setting, detail, point of view, voice, dialogue, and narrative structure. We’ll read and discuss published stories by writers such as Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Nathan Englander, and ZZ Packer, taking them apart and reassembling them with an eye toward elements of craft. Weekly writing exercises and a workshop towards the second half will allow you to develop your own work in a supportive environment.
