What you'll learn in this fiction class:

This fiction workshop is for experienced writers looking for feedback on their short stories and novel chapters. In a warm environment, students will receive honest, detailed feedback and learn techniques to improve craft, deepen fiction, and identify and tackle common storytelling problems. Each student will get to submit two pieces for workshopping over the six weeks and must have work ready to present.  

Prerequisite: This is a permission-only class and interested students will need to submit up to eight pages of a fiction-writing sample. 

Location Note:
All classes are located at the West Side YMCA at 5 West 63rd Street. Students will need to check in with reception, and on their first visit they will need to check in with the Membership Desk to get their program participant card for entry. Reception will direct them to the room where their class is being held.

Going Deeper: Fiction Workshop
Reviewed by Meghan on 3/7/2018
This course was largely focused on critiquing your work and the work of the other students. Beth Ann Bauman was a really supportive, thoughtful teacher who gave insightful comments and helpful suggestions on how to improve your work and keep moving forward. I appreciated her help so much that I've now signed up for another one of her writing classes!
