Page-Turning Fiction


Thursday, March 5, 2015 - Thursday, April 9, 2015
7:00 pm - 9:30 pm


If you’ve ever stayed up ‘til three with a compelling novel, you’ve probably wondered, “How do they do that?” Study the literary techniques of popular genres and learn how to create compelling plots in a unique voice, by harnessing the conflict and tension between sympathetic protagonists and disquieting antagonists. Whether your characters inhabit the extreme world of detection and intrigue, or the everyday life of private agonies and personal satisfactions, your writing can benefit from that special “can’t-put-it-down” magic.

6 Thursdays, 7:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m., 3/05/2015–4/09/2015
