Over three weeks, work closely with this master teacher as he guides you through craft techniques gleaned from these genres to show you how to gain more access to your intuitive resources. In the workshop, everyone will draft new work and revise pre-existing pieces, using a process that brings together intuition and craft in unique ways.

Four Ways to Develop as  a Fiction Writer: A One-day Workshop with National Book Critics’ Circle Award Winner Ben Fountain

April 17 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT

In this workshop we’ll focus on four specific areas in the craft of writing fiction and will discuss the more general questions of fiction’s role in society, and how we as aspiring writers might also aspire to keep our bodies, souls, and sanity intact while developing as artists. The four craft sections will deal with character, plot, dialogue, and scene, with examples drawn from modern and contemporary fiction, and occasionally nonfiction. Along the way, we’ll discuss work routines, what to do when we’re stuck, where to submit our work, and what—and how—to read as writers.
