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 the building blocks of prose fiction: character, setting, detail, point of view, voice, dialogue, and narrative structure. Weekly writing exercises and activities will allow you to develop your own work in a supportive environment.
