Crafting the Creative: The Fine Art of Fiction

Begin­ning with the most basic ele­ment — sen­so­ry words, frag­ment­ed phras­es and spon­ta­neous­ly com­posed text sketch­es, this course is designed to help both emerg­ing and estab­lished writ­ers renew and refine their skills in the cre­ative writ­ing process. In a series of com­po­si­tion exer­cis­es that build on each oth­er, the ele­ments of fic­tion ¿ voice, point of view, plot, char­ac­ters and struc­ture are explored in a fun, infor­ma­tive work­shop style. Be pre­pared to write, share, laugh, and learn. Stu­dents are encour­aged but not required to bring a work of short fic­tion, flash fic­tion, or a nov­el frag­ment to class.
