Fiction Writing: Prompts, Discussion, and Workshop (ZOOM) FULL, Wait list only
Dates: 4 Wednesdays, February 7 - 28
Time: 5:30 - 7:30 pm PST
Instructor: Angela Pneuman
This course is a fun combination of pushing forward new work through prompts and brief assignments; workshopping up to 10 pages of a short story or novel with the group; and reading stories and short novel excerpts of published fiction for stimulating discussion.
We'll create a supportive online community and share solutions to common writerly issues like writers' block, publishing efforts, and how to sustain writing while living otherwise busy lives. Plenty of time for open Q&A as well!
