Telling Great Stories
Everyone has a story to tell. Whether you’re a skilled practitioner polishing a piece or a beginner learning the craft, this workshop has something for you. Often, there isn't a big difference between fiction and nonfiction, and both formats are welcome here. Many writers begin with incidents that they remember, or situations that are happening now, and shape that material into stories. We will focus on elements of "creative" prose writing—plot, character, setting, voice, and beginnings and endings—through weekly prompts and detailed critiques.  Exercises and works in progress will be reviewed in class in a friendly supportive atmosphere. Revisions of works in progress will be considered, as well. Often, work begun as an exercise grows into a longer piece after the class meeting. Each writer will receive one-to-one attention. The workshop is open to everyone.

The Art and Craft of Novel Writing 

You have an idea for a novel. Perhaps you've sketched out some characters or jotted down some scenes. Maybe you've written a few chapters, or a first draft-or maybe you haven't been able to get started.

Writing a novel involves creating a world populated by compelling characters while making sure every moment brings the story to its fullest potential. This workshop will help you develop the skills to make that happen. Approaches to plotting will receive special attention. Other topics include voice, point of view, dialogue and theme. Each student will have a chance to submit one chapter, or about ten pages of work, every other week. These pages will be read by everyone in advance.

Emphasis will be on creating rather than critiquing. You’ll always have the choice of sharing your writing to the group or keeping it a mystery.
