MONDAYS, SEPT. 20th— OCT. 25th | This course is designed for students who have experience in a fiction writing workshop and want to go deeper in developing their writing. In our intimate workshop, we will discuss the direction your work is taking and how you can move it towards publication.
You will have the opportunity to have your work discussed in the workshop at least two times. We will discuss craft issues as they relate to strengthening your individual writing. We will also investigate and critique the structure of a workshop and make sure that everyone feels safe and is receiving the kind of critique that will genuinely help them. I will give you written feedback on all of your submissions, if you desire. The class is limited to ten students.
Asynchronous learning materials for this class will be available online (via the Wet Ink platform). Scheduled class sessions will take place via Zoom. Registered students, please contact the instructor directly for Zoom details.
