Writing Stories Through Revision [Mary Potter]

Time: 12:00am - 12:00am PT
Capacity: seat
Member Price: $337.50
General Price: $375.00

All Levels. You’ll write a short story, get hands-on practice with essential tools of fiction writing, and learn the art of revising. Start with a blank page: draft a voiced account of a true event in the first class. Then revise that draft, each week learning a different tool (POV, time management, objects/setting, age of protagonist, conflict, and structure) and adding that layer to the previous revision. Watch the stories emerge, deepen, shift, and find their final beauty.
