4-Day Intensive Workshops for
Short Story Writers, Novelists,
and Authors of Creative Nonfiction

The class will meet every day for four days, with a morning workshop and an afternoon seminar focused on craft. For the seminar, there will be reading assignments and study of works by well-known writers. Each participant will have one manuscript workshopped in class and a second manuscript reviewed for an individual conference with Tom. We will study storytelling and the formal elements of fiction, including voice, point of view, characterization, imagery, plot, and theme. Attention will also be given to scene building, sentence making, and the dramatic movement of descriptive writing.

Enrollment limited to 12 participants. (Acceptance into the class will be based on evaluation of a submitted manuscript.)
