Organic Story Building [Alma Garcia]
All Levels | How to begin a story when you don’t know where to begin? You don’t make a choice, said the writer Paul Bowles—you follow a scent. This class is for writers who crave inspiration, grounding in the elements of fiction, and a fresh approach to generating stories. We’ll write from prompts every class, analyze other writers’ work, and share our experiments, producing an unexpected story start by class’s end. Students may be asked to complete short, nontraditional assignments outside of class.
