Why Fiction Fluency?

Eric Witchey’s Fiction Fluency Seminars combine practical experience with linguistic and cognitive science research on how readers internalize story in heart and mind. The seminars present practicable, executable skills for creation, analysis, and revision of short stories and novels. The series begins with the foundation of habits, and each class layers on a new level of complexity and control that allows the participants to acquire skills that will allow them to create professional-level short, shorts; short stories, novelettes, novellas, novels in any genre.
Each seminar can be taken as a stand-alone class, or each of the four-seminar terms can be taken as a whole with a discount, or the entire series can be taken at a substantial discount.
Returning participants are given first priority for seating. Class sizes are limited.
The first class in the program, Establishing the Foundations of Your Creative Life, forms the foundations of the program.
Returning participants can choose to skip that class without impact to their experience of subsequent classes. They may also choose to engage in a refresher.
The first hour of each class will include a summary of the foundations, and arrangements can be made by alumni to enter the classroom at the first break if they would like.


Establishing the Foundations of Your Creative Life  

Saturday, January 19 from 1-5 pm & Sunday, January 20, 9-1pm
We will begin with an introduction to the cognitive foundations of learning, reading, story-telling, and creativity, and then translate that knowledge into habits that will not only increase the speed of your learning but also result in solid, practical foundations and support for long-term gains. The class will also include story analysis methods that will help establish solid habits, no matter what kind of writing you do.
