Novel Study Hall: Narrative Techniques
Students will also write a short piece in connection with each pair of readings, using the excerpts and provided prompts as jumping-off points to experiment with different narrative techniques in their own writing. These pieces can be related to the students’ larger projects or stand alone as short stories, and we will share and discuss them in class each week.
This class will take place in-person at our Center for Creative Writing in Boston's Seaport neighborhood.
GrubStreet's space will be mask optional when Boston's Covid-19 Community Level is low or medium. When the Covid-19 Community Level is high, our space will require masks. Please check GrubStreet's Covid-19 page for the latest info on masking and Community Levels before visiting in-person.
