Have a story to share? Looking to hone your prose? This 4-week workshop is designed to help you get started on a short piece of fiction. Together we’ll take a crash course in the basic craft elements, read a sampling of the best contemporary literature, and generate new material with occasional writing prompts. You'll also have a chance to receive feedback on your work. Fiction of any form, length, or genre is welcome. No experience necessary.
