At its most basic, a good story/novel/memoir involves a sympathetic character, engaged in a dramatic struggle that results in transformation. How difficult can it be to write that? Damn difficult! This course will focus on the four cornerstones of virtually every captivating story: enthralling characters; gripping narrative; character-revealing dialogue; scenes that pull the reader in and don?t let go. The first half of each class will be devoted to lecture and discussion; the second, to exercises that reinforce the topic of the day. If you are writing a ?story??whether it?s short or long fiction, or creative nonfiction/memoir, this course will help you learn how to hook your audience and keep them turning the pages. ?????
