Introduction to Fiction Writing

You love to read fiction. And the more you read, the more stories of your own you have swimming or flying or dancing in your head. You want to write them down.


But where to begin? You're a good writer; writing may even be a large part of your job. Maybe you've kept a journal for years. So why the heck can't you get that story out?


In this six-week class, you won't be asked to complete a piece of fiction. (Experienced fiction writers can take months to complete a story.) Instead, the in-class writing exercises will encourage you to play with the basic elements of fiction: setting, characterization, time (scene versus summary), point of view, language.

This class runs six consecutive Tuesdays from March 20th-April 24th. The classes are held from 7-9 pm each night.

COST: $175 — Class size is limited to 12. Advanced registration is required.
