FICTION WRITING SESSIONS
November 12th from 9:30 - 12:30pm;
November 26th from 9:30 -12:30pm. (Pre-requisite Session One)
Limited Class Size - 8 Students
Cost: $200.00 + HST
In the first session, we will be discussing the major elements of short fiction such as plot, character, and setting. To facilitate this discussion we will use a short story that will be emailed to participants ahead of time. As we discuss each element, we will also be doing in-class writing exercises to underpin our understanding. Work done in class will also be discussed by participants.
Participants will then have time to craft a short story of their own. During this break, participants may consult with the instructor via email about their story if they wish. Participants will be required to submit their stories to the instructor by Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016 so the instructor may disseminate them to the entire workshop.
On the second and final session, we will spend the entire time workshopping participants' stories. Guidelines to workshopping will be provided.
