Workshop Description

This course, intended for those who have had previous writing experience, will focus on short story writing, novels, and novellas. Aspiring writers are most welcome, as are those who have a current project in various stages of completion. We will use the Iowa Writing Workshop approach to facilitate critiques and commentary constructive to the writer’s work and goals.

Students should bring enough copies (max of 12) of their writing project (no more than 10 double-spaced pages) with them to the first class. The other students will receive these copies and bring them home for critique where they will then be the subject for group discussion at the next class. This will be the weekly class format for the remainder of the course.

Finding and recognizing your voice, outlining, structuring the plot, establishing the story arc, giving your characters depth and roundness, evoking the scene through description and detail, experimenting with points of view, and rewriting beginnings and endings are ongoing issues for exploration throughout the course as will any other pertinent topics that may evolve during class time.
