Fiction II

This class will build upon craft learned in Fiction I. We'll briefly review the basics of character, conflict, and plot, then focus on craft elements including point of view, setting, scene, pacing, and dialogue. Students will read published stories weekly, do weekly in-class and take-home writing exercises, lead discussions, and workshop their own drafts (including a full story or story/novel excerpt) in a supportive environment with their teacher and peers. The instructor will provide a story to read before the first class.

No class on 11/24.
