Whether you have a novel ready to workshop or are looking for something to jump-start a new project, join us this fantasy and sci-fi novel workshop. The first half of class will be lecture style, broken up by 2-3 writing prompts with sci-fi/fantasy elements in mind. The second half will be critiquing student work. We will go over positive/supportive critiquing in the first class to help alleviate anxiety for the group. This class is open to all levels, and writers do not have to have a novel already written.
