Fiction II [Susan Meyers]
This class will build upon craft learned in Fiction I. In life, we try to avoid making messes — but stories love disaster. Good writers get characters all fired up and let that tension drive a story all the way through. Come learn how to lend fiery passion to your writing and grip readers’ attention from beginning to end. We’ll study the tools of narrative drama (e.g. tension, pacing, scene-making, suspense) through writing exercises, samples from contemporary authors, and workshop of each other’s writing — to help you to set your own story aflame.
