Class Description

Description

What you'll learn in this writing class:

This Creative Writing Weekend is designed for writers who want to learn the craft of exceptional storytelling in an intensive setting.

In this  workshop course, students gain a high level of training in the craft of writing by mastering rhythm, tempo, tone, and brevity. They explore the process of developing lively characters, mapping out a plot, describing realistic settings, adding subtext and layers of meaning, and penning captivating fiction.

Students master the qualities that make for spellbinding fiction and the techniques used by writers in crafting stories and imagining characters. These lessons will be reinforced through in-class writing exercises.
