Fiction Graphic

This class is for beginning writers who would like to write a crime novel, as well as more experienced writers who feel that they could benefit from a return to the basics. We will explore the process of crime fiction with emphasis on its component parts—conflict, plot, structure, POV, character development, dialogue, and settings.

We will put what we learn into action with in-class exercises and at-home writing assignments followed by abundant feedback from the teaching artist as well as other class members.

Student manuscripts will not be critiqued. However, portions of your works in progress may be used for writing assignments when appropriate. Particular attention will be paid to turning "real-life" events into stories with a bite.
