The best way to learn to write fiction is to do it, receive informed and constructive feedback, and then revise. Each student will bring one manuscript of up to 8,000 words (either stand-alone story or the beginning of a novel) to be critiqued by other students and the instructor. The instructor will also review your rewrite, if you choose, after the class has ended. Critiquing will be supplemented by instructor-led discussion, writing exercises, and hand-outs on aspects of technique. Receive professional suggestions to improve your writing in a supportive but honest atmosphere.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.
Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
