8-Week: Lakewood—Story Architecture for Fiction and Nonfiction

$325.00 Members
$355.00 Non-members

In this eight-week workshop, you’ll explore story structure, conflict, voice, and other topics that will help you write stories and narrative nonfiction that are dramatic, compelling, and get to the heart of what you want to say. Every week, we’ll read and discuss published short stories and creative nonfiction to see how other writers get the job done. We’ll read and respond to drafts written by our fellow students. You’ll have two opportunities to workshop up to 20 pages of your writing in a supportive and encouraging environment, and you’ll get detailed feedback from the instructor. Last, you’ll be given optional exercises designed to help you understand how to put various ideas into practice. Open to writers of all levels and writers of fiction, creative nonfiction, and memoir.
