Is there a story you need to tell, but a personal essay hits too close to home?
Do you want to set your characters in place you’ve never been, or write in a voice different from your own?
In this immersive fiction class, you can explore your imagination in new and creative ways.
We’ll read and discuss great short stories, do generative writing exercises, as well as workshop a first draft, then present a finished draft the short story you’ll write in our supportive online environment.
This class takes place remotely online via Zoom. Register to receive the zoom link and class instructions.
