Class Description


What you'll learn in this poetry class:

What makes a good story tick?

In this in-person class, Myla Goldberg will take you under the hood of contemporary realist and fabulist fiction to discuss stories from the perspective of craft. You'll plumb the mysteries of scene, point of view, character development and narrative arc, with each discussion culminating with an in-class guided writing exercise inspired by the story.

This is not a workshop: rather than share writing, this class creates a crucible for new ideas and new directions. No application is required and writers of all levels are welcome.
