This six-week workshop will meet on Thursday, October 27, November 3, 10, 17, December 1 and 8 at The Cabin from 6:30-8:30pm
We’ll begin our workshop each week with an informal conversation about what it means to be a writer of fiction—everything from process to publishing. We’ll study the short story form by reading a selection of published stories, and we’ll talk about narrative techniques to improve our own writing. Writers should plan on sharing two stories over the course of the workshop, and will in turn receive written feedback as well as a generous group discussion of the work. This class is open to writers of all stages, writers looking to learn more about craft and gain outside perspective into their own fiction.
