In this three-hour workshop we will embark upon a fast, fun, and in-depth adventure in which we explore the fundamentals and subtleties of dozens of craft elements essential to composing great literary fiction stories. By the end of our session, attending writers will have attained greater clarity about what questions good writers ask as they work, as well as a clearer sense of what editors and agents look for when they receive a pitch or a submission.
Also, each writer will be assigned an exercise or prompt customized to the page we critiqued and designed to vitalize both the specific work and the writer’s development.
Please bring to workshop ten printed copies of the first page of a work of literary fiction for the group and the instructor’s review. It’s fine if your submission stops mid-sentence instead of ending at a “natural place.”
