Our Fiction Workshop is aimed at writers looking to create a regular practice and master the essentials and are looking for a community of peers ready to offer insightful, impartial feedback on works in progress. Class time is spent on in-depth discussion of student work, in-class writing prompts to produce new work, and analysis of published writing to inspire and inform.
Writers should have writing experience and some writing class/workshop experience.
