Intro to Fiction

Got stories? Get started writing fiction! Whether you’re working on a novel, a memoir, short stories or if you’re a brand-new writer, this fun, introductory class focuses on fiction basics such as creating characters, settings, writing in scenes, using dialogue and managing time, as well as ideas for building a writing life. We’ll inspire each other with imaginative ideas and a solid foundation of writing skills for any genre. Participants will study published fiction and work toward producing a fiction story. Class may be taken as a stand-alone or as Part One of Two Intro to Fiction workshops.

This is the first of a two-part introductory workshop series.
