An introductory workshop in fiction writing. Adults of all ages and all experience levels and genres are welcome. Each week, an element of story (image, voice, character, setting, and story) will be explored through lecture, discussion and writing exercises. At the end of each workshop session, a writing prompt will be assigned. Students will craft a one to two-page piece of fiction and return the following week with these assignments, to be delivered during the workshop. Participants will complete a portfolio of fiction writing samples during this workshop series.
