Often, what we writers render on the page are concepts of drama meant to profoundly affect the reader, but they do not. In this five-week process class we will dissect the intricate concepts of how emotions are developed in fiction, and master how to recognize and apply narrative craft that develop dramatic emotions in ways that can move our readers. These skills will be developed through in-class writing exercises and assignments, focusing on interior monologue, characters’ perceptions, creating motivations, and more. This is a rare opportunity to take a class that was originally designed as a graduate-level fiction writing course. Junse Kim is the recipient of a Pushcart Prize, a Faulkner Short Story Award, and the Philip Roth Residence in Creative Writing at Bucknell University.

He teaches fiction writing at the MFA programs at San Francisco State University and University of San Francisco.
