The Craft of Fiction with Teddy Wayne


6 sessions, in-person meetings

Once a week Wednesdays, 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm April 10 to May 15, 2019

In addition to workshopping fiction in this six-session class, we will read published stories that focus on different elements of craft: showing versus telling, point of view, characterization, dialogue, and narrative. When we discuss the class’s creative output, we will strive to isolate these elements as much as possible, homing in on problematic areas. In addition, we will discuss questions concerning publishing. Novel excerpts are permitted. This course is open to writers with all experience levels.
