All Levels | Does your plot hold your reader’s heart? Are your characters taking risks, maybe even being downright obnoxious? Does your dialogue sing? Do your scenes waltz along the pages? Over these eight weeks, we go deep and generate writing that will make your fiction break out of the ordinary, take flight, and soar. Through readings, writing exercises, and workshopping, you will write new scenes and chapters (or revise existing ones), write a pitch/query letter, and construct a map for your project 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 Winter quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
