Writing Fiction that Dares

Are your characters taking risks? Does your plot hold your reader’s heart? Does your dialogue sing? Do your scenes waltz along the page? Over these eight weeks, we will get into the nuts and bolts of what makes your fiction soar. Through readings, writing exercises, and workshopping, you will write at least one new chapter (or revise an existing one) and construct a map for your novel or short story that will keep you powering through your work of fiction that dares.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through the end of 2020.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
