About the Class
This three-session workshop is for writers currently working on a novel or short stories who want to sharpen their craft and participate in structured critique. The instruction will focus on deep point of view, character nuance and dimensions, and plot organization and pacing. We will integrate these topics into students’ practice through generating or revising short scenes within students’ manuscripts. We will discuss these scenes and model how to participate in a supportive, productive critique group. Students will also explore an excellent visual tool for laying out plot that can be adapted to any writers’ style and pantser/plotter inclinations.
