- This is an advanced class requiring students to have a solid foundation in writing fiction and/or creative non-fiction.
This 12-credit workshop is designed for 15 students who already have a foundation in writing fiction and/or creative non-fiction. Through our writing, reading, and review of film as a medium, we will examine and practice the craft of creating rich characters, vibrant scenes, and crisp dialogue. During spring quarter, students will produce one memoir-based piece, a short story or novel chapter, and a "student choice" writing block. We will concentrate on the craft of revision with each section of writing. This is an evening/weekend based program that will meet every Wednesday evening and five full Saturdays, with shorter Monday evening meetings for critique groups and workshops where students share drafts and assist one another with writing. Students should also expect to spend additional time critiquing peer work outside the classroom.
