This fun and supportive class is geared toward beginning creative writers—writers who are beginning to explore what they want to write about or writers who have been writing in solitude for a while but have rarely or never shared their work with others.
In class, you’ll receive structure and guidance around creating new work as we discuss the foundations of storytelling: character, setting, plot, and theme. Through thoughtful and lively class discussion, you’ll gain insight into the key elements of great fiction. Weekly writing prompts will also help you on your way to creating your own original short story.
By the end of the class, each writer will have completed one short story, which they will discuss in a one-on-one conference with the instructor.
This class is a small, friendly group of around 6–12 writers. Come ready to create, laugh, and connect!
Writers in this class can expect to:
Gain a strong understanding of the key elements of compelling fiction.
Explore their own story ideas and themes through thought-provoking writing prompts.
Read and be inspired by excellent pieces of short fiction.
Complete an original short story and receive insightful feedback on it.
Connect with a positive and supportive writing community.
