The Craft of Story: Fiction

The desire to tell and hear stories has existed long before recorded history and continues to impact how we perceive our lives. Whether you are interested in the short story, novel, or using fictional techniques in nonfiction, you'll want to learn to tell your story well. The process includes analyzing key narrative principles such as point of view, character, conflict, plot, dialogue, point of entry, and inevitable endings. Short reading assignments illustrate craft; in-class writing exercises put those techniques into practice. Tools for revision and publishing completed work will be covered. Participants may submit their own projects for class discussion.
