Whether you’re looking to write stories or a novel, this course will introduce three key elements of fiction: description, conflict, and character. Alongside published examples and writing prompts, you will write a short story and learn the basics of the workshop model.
We have now opened a second section of the class taking place in the afternoon – spots are still available!
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.
