Author Annie Proulx (Brokeback Mountain) said, “You should write because you love the shape of stories and sentences and the creation of different words on a page.” In this generative workshop for emerging fiction writers, we’ll complete writing exercises to help you shape your story, and discuss the elements of fiction, such as point-of-view, plot, setting, character and dialogue. Over the course of four sessions, we’ll produce new work in a creative and supportive environment.
