SUMMER: Intro to Fiction Workshop w Wayne Gregory | June 20 - July 25

Telling Stories: How to Write Fiction

“Fiction was invented the day Jonah arrived home and told his wife that he was three days late because he had been swallowed by a whale.”  ― Gabriel García Márquez

As soon as humans could speak, they gathered around the fire to tell stories. We’ve been doing it ever since.  We love to tell stories and to hear them because they have the power to change us. But how to take that story in your head and craft it into a fictional form that will grab and hold your readers? This class will show you! You will learn about some of the basic elements of fiction (plot, character development, point of view, description, and dialogue) and you will gain strategies to bring all these elements together into well-crafted writing. You will walk away with a clear sense of where to go with your fiction and how to move to the next level. Create a new, short work of fiction or bring in excerpts from something that you have already been working on. Get tips, resources, and the valuable feedback of your fellow fiction writers. Register now and get ready to tell your story. NOTE: Thurs. July 4 - no class. | Maximum: 12 writers
