Yearlong in Fiction (IN-PERSON) [Peter Mountford]
All Levels | This yearlong class is open to fiction writers, regardless of genre, and is designed to help writers meet creative goals/deadlines, and provide feedback on their work (whether you’re working on short stories, a novel, starting a book, or in your third revision). The aim is for students to be producing work that is ready for publication — many former students have published. The class uses an array of workshop and peer-review techniques to build fluency with craft — controlling narrative time, narrative structure, characterization, tone, voice, and point of view — which empowers writers to make intentional creative decisions (instead of feeling like you’re being held hostage by the whims of inspiration). Students will gain control over the craft elements in their work, so that they can more easily write and revise with intention.
Payment plans available. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
