FICTIONFICTION
Jacob White

This primary workshop meets each morning from 10 to 12.

This class introduces students to the art and craft of contemporary short fiction. Together we will explore the nuances of scene and setting, character development, voice, dialogue, point of view, and of course plot development. Students will read published works in a wide range of styles, do lots of writing exercises, and share their work in a supportive environment.
