8-WEEK FICTION I - CLASS BEGINS June 6, 2017

Fiction I is our beginning workshop in short fiction writing for beginners with no experience and intermediate students who simply want to brush up on the basics. This 8-week creative writing class is now enrolling and is designed to make you a better reader and writer of short fiction. The course focuses on teaching the fundamental techniques of fiction writing, with in-class workshopping of student manuscripts and discussion of some assigned outside reading. We’ll use Ron Carlson's concepts of inner story, outer story, and narrative inventory and focus on fundamental techniques of fiction, including plot, characterization, scene, setting, dialogue, timeline, and point of view. Each week we’ll focus on craft and discuss published work, though the central focus of each class meeting will be the discussion of student work. Student fiction will be workshopped in a supportive, respectful, and constructively critical environment with the goal of improving an individual’s voice and vision for their piece via traditional elements of craft.

Each writer will have two opportunities to have his or her work critiqued in class (up to 25 pages each time) and will receive typed feedback from both the instructor and his or her classmates. A private conference with the instructor is included. This course is OPEN to EXPERIENCED writers who want a refresher course on the basics of craft and the function and role of the workshop
