Thinking about writing a novel or short story? “Most people know what a story is until they sit down to write one,” the great Flannery O’Connor observed. This course will introduce the tools of fiction writing, including character development, act structure, conflict, outlines and beat sheets, obstacles, resolutions, surprise versus suspense, and professional tips to raise the level of your writing. Each class will include writing exercises and opportunities to share our work. The course is designed for writers ready to begin writing fiction. By the end of the course you can expect to have drafted a firm foundation for your story. | Active participation.
