Do you have a story to tell? Now’s the time to move your idea from inspiration to page. This workshop will explore fiction through craft-talks and writing exercises. Each session focuses on an element of craft, such as how to develop engaging characters and how to create lifelike dialogue. In a supportive environment, participants will write from in-class prompts and share their work, receiving valuable feedback from fellow writers. We will read and discuss short stories by contemporary writers such as Amy Bloom, Ha Jin, and Carmen Maria Machado, as well as the classic works of Ernest Hemingway and Flannery O’Connor. Writers at all levels will strengthen their writing and their connection to creativity.
