The Elements of Fiction
Your story or novel is made up of different elements that you can understand and examine in order to write more powerful prose. In this workshop, we’ll critique your manuscripts with an eye toward these critical elements of your fiction: words-sentences-paragraphs, dialogue, character, physical details, and point-of-view.
While examining your prose, we’ll also look at the work of some accomplished writers to study how they create those perfectly polished sentences, idiosyncratic details that place us specifically in a scene, and characters that jump of the page.
You’ll leave this workshop with ideas on how to improve your manuscript, and write powerful, compelling prose, as well as a list of authors to read.
