Breathing Life into Secondary Characters [Beth Slattery]
Introductory | Turning our true stories (or someone else’s) into fiction is not simply a matter of changing names and locations to protect the innocent. In this workshop we will learn qualities of successful fiction writing including reshaping truth to engage readers fully. We will read, write stories, and share our own work with each other. Students can expect to leave this course with new tools, a developed draft of a story, and plenty of feedback from classmates and instructor for revision.
