In this workshop we will focus on the art of fiction writing – how to begin, how to structure your work and what makes a good story. Each week we will focus on a different craft element such as finding your voice, developing characters and drafting a plot. Students can expect in-class writing, sharing work, as well as peer and teacher feedback. This workshop will also feature weekly writing assignments, to be completed outside of class. By the end of the workshop, students will have a greater knowledge of what makes a strong piece of fiction and leave with the beginnings of their own stories. This class is open to all levels.
