Course Catalog

Fiction III

This class will build upon craft learned in Fiction I and II. Students can expect advanced readings, regular workshops, and feedback from their classmates and instructor. We’ll look at each other’s drafts with an eye to properly balancing the elements of story, such as plot, character, voice, and pacing, into a well-structured, thematically resonant whole that keeps the reader turning the pages. As time allows, we’ll also examine published work that inspires and instructs.

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.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
