In this three-session fiction workshop, students will be introduced to the nuts and bolts of what makes a good story. They will brainstorm for ideas and begin writing a story that focuses on key fictional elements such as voice and plot. In addition to written comments from the teacher, they can also expect to leave the class with the beginnings of a story of their own. This is an instructional course that leaves plenty of time for in-class writing and participation.
