In this class, students will learn about the elements of FICTION WRITING through a series of in-class exercises, as well as some assignments to be done outside of the class.
- Exercises will include writing dialogue; writing action and description; creating strong and memorable characters; writing fiction and non-fiction; getting a better understanding of plot and story structure; and more.
- Students will do some in-class exercises, then try their hand at writing a two short stories and a few pages from a novel.
- You’ll have opportunities to share your writings with the group, and to get feedback from others in the class, and from the instructor.
I also teach English now, and I’ve realized how meaningful it can be to hear from students who have valued your instruction. To that end, I want to thank you for giving me my first “push” and encouraging me to continue doing what I love. I plan to move back to Seattle in the coming months, and I hope I’ll run into you sometime so I can thank you in person. I hope you’re continuing to teach and to inspire.
