Novel and Short Story Collection Workshop with Rachel Sherman
Begins April 15th, Sundays, 7-9pm
Windsor Terrace at The Founders Workspace – 10 weeks for $700
Structured around in-class discussions of your work, in this 10-week intensive workshop we will focus on structuring, outlining and critiquing your novel or short story collection. In addition to reading and editing your chapters, we will examine the narrative, plot and point-of-view in order to find the right framework to best tell your story. You will receive written critiques and line edits from Rachel as well as your peers. By the end of the class you will have a clear sense of the voice and trajectory of your novel or short story collection, and the framework you need to finish your forthcoming chapters.
Fiction Workshop 1 with Sara Lippmann
Begins May 7, Mondays, 7-9pm
Ditmas Park – 6 weeks for $395
Whether you’re new to fiction or haven’t written in some time, this 6 week class will provide you with the space, time, and opportunity to throw yourself all in. Students will develop and deepen their writing practice through an exploration of fiction of various styles and lengths. In-class sessions will combine detailed yet supportive story critiques, close readings of published texts, generative exercises and spirited discussion of craft fundamentals like character, voice, and point-of-view. Goals include building a new or existing portfolio, experimenting with both compressed fiction (aka flash) and longer story forms, and polishing work with an eye toward publication.
