When: Thursdays, 6:30-8 p.m. and Thu., Dec. 1, 6:30-8 p.m. Continues through Nov. 17 2016
Students will generate, workshop, and revise works of fiction based initially or partially upon fact or any real life experience, the more truthful and personal the better. The goal will be to produce a fictional short story or even the beginnings of a novel. Unconstrained by strict rules of memoir or “fact-based” narrative non-fiction, students will experiment with more fluid methods of storytelling and learn strategies to re-see their own writing processes. A seemingly mundane afternoon spent alone, or talking with a friend, can be turned into a great piece of fiction.
