Writing Fiction

Well-crafted short stories and novel chapters have a lot in common: They employ many of the same elements of writing—solid narrative arc, strong voice, the right point of view, among various and sundry other elements. Publishing houses and literary journal editors are on the hunt for beautifully crafted work, so whether you want to start a new short story/novel chapter or work on existing material, this workshop is for you. We will focus on elements of scene including point of view, character development, dialogue, sense of place, and story movement. You will learn how to incorporate basic storytelling principles, forms, and techniques into your writing. This class will be useful for writers at any level of experience who wish to develop new or ongoing material. We will read from published models and write each day. Instructor: Christine Maul Rice
