10-Week Prose Workshop

This course gives students an opportunity to deep-dive into the revision of their writing and develop thoughtful, supportive, critical responses when looking at others' work. Students will share their work multiple times and discuss craft issues (narration, character, scene development, pacing, etc.), while creating a strong community of writers. They will generate twenty-five or more pages of writing, which will receive extensive feedback and opportunity for revision. Stories, essays, memoir, and novel excerpts are welcome!

No class dates: 11/23/2023
