The 16-Week Prose Workshop
This longer-than-average course gives students an opportunity to deep-dive into the revision of their writing and develop thoughtful, supportive, critical responses when looking at others' work. Students will share their work multiple times, discuss craft issues (narration, character, scene development, pacing, etc.), while creating a strong community of writers. They will generate thirty or more pages of writing, which will receive extensive feedback and opportunity for revision. Stories, essays, and memoir and novel excerpts welcome!
