Monday Night Fiction Workshop

A writer is someone who writes, and this workshop respects and honors the desire to write. Writing can be a much more fun and satisfying activity than we often make it, and together we will support each other’s growth by encouraging creative exploration, experimentation, and trust in our unique, individual voices. To help writers feel comfortable exploring various types of writing techniques, prompts and suggestions will be offered. After each exercise, there will be time to read work written in workshop.We will then respond to the newborn work by commenting on its strengths. Writers will find these responses helpful when returning to a piece for revision.Our aim is to be completely honest and at the same time encouraging to the writer in his or her efforts. Through the instructor’s responses, participants will gain insight into successful dialogue, character development, choosing the best narrator for a given piece of writing, and participants will gain the opportunity to examine their own creative processes within the context of a supportive community.

6 Mondays, 7:00–9:00 p.m., 1/12/2015–2/16/2015
