Help! I Have a Fear of Fiction!

Are you confused about how to "make things happen?" It's easier than you think! This class is a three-hour playground of generative writing geared in particular to poets and nonfiction writers who want to tell a story but are terrified of things like "plot," "action," and something called "raising the stakes." We'll play with lies, write a story out of almost nothing, and experiment with magical realism. You'll come out with a story. Maybe two!

HAPPY HOUR FLASH SALE! All spring classes are 10% off now through Monday, May 15. Discount taken in your cart at checkout.
