4-Week: Your Message in Fiction

$205.00 Members
$230.00 Non-members

Too often, fiction with a message is didactic, preachy, or your reader feels like they are being lectured to rather than engaged. But in this four-week workshop, we'll focus on writing fiction with a strong social message that is engaging as a work of art and as a message. Through in-class and out of class exercises, readings including W.E.B. DuBois and Sophocles, and discussion, students will emerge with fiction that engages and entertains their readers, rather than repelling them.

Please note that our four-week workshops do not include formal critiques, though there may be opportunities for informal sharing. If you’d like your work critiqued in depth, please see the 8-week workshop listings.
