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.)
