About the Program

Fine-tune your writing skills in this close-knit workshop. Spend time each week exploring different elements of the craft, including shaping a scene, building tension, and using syntax to amplify the narrative voice. Self-editing is key as you respond to classroom critiques and take your manuscript to the next level. Ideal for writers of fiction, personal essay, and memoir.
