Fiction I [Anca Szilagyi]
Whether you’re looking to write stories or a novel, this course will introduce three key elements of fiction: character, plot, and landscape. Alongside published examples and writing prompts in and out of class, you will write a short story and learn the basics of the workshop model.
Tiered classes are designed to help you feel confident in progressing through your writing with the appropriate tools, skills, and an understanding of the diverse voices at work in each genre. You may self-select into classes based on where you feel comfortable in a particular genre, and you are welcome to take classes as many times as you would like. (If you have little to no experience in a workshop setting, we recommend starting at Tier I.)
