Are you eager to test the waters of creative writing but not sure where to start, or how? Have you written previously but been away for a while and hope to dip back in? This introductory fiction workshop is designed to help beginning writers take their skills to the next level. We will focus on specific craft elements like setting, character, dialogue, description, and plot. Manuscripts are critiqued by your peers in a highly supportive workshop environment. You will learn how to create stronger scenes and write more evocative prose with a greater appeal to the senses. This workshop will also help you pinpoint areas needing revision, as well as provide you with tools to become your own best editor.
