The Writer’s Center: Fiction 1 – Story Writing
Tuesday, September 12, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Workshop Leader: Con Lehane
This workshop is designed to help you find the stories you were meant to write, and to begin to develop the craft you’ll need to tell them. Where do stories come from? To begin with, they come from memories, associations, and concerns within you. We’ll do some exercises to help you uncover these “germs of an idea for a story” and turn them into fiction. You’ll be asked to write a lot, a notebook, stories, and exercises (Come to the first class prepared to write—paper, pen, laptop). By the end of the course, participants will have written at least one draft of a story, most likely more than one (or perhaps started on a novel), and become familiar with the basic elements of story writing.
