Learning from the Masters: The Art & Craft of Fiction
May 27 - July 29, 2010
This creative writing workshop is for students interested in learning to think as a writer thinks—considering both inspiration and technique. In order to uncover the secrets of great writing, our class time will be spent analyzing classic stories by authors such as Hemingway and Fitzgerald, as well as contemporary greats like Munro and Carver. Throughout the course, students will use these lessons to write their own stories for workshop.
