Fiction is the art of using a lie to reveal the truth. Or maybe it’s telling the truth and only pretending that the truth is a lie.
Over the course of our sessions, we learn—through the development of character, voice, environment, dialogue, setting and point of view—how to construct truthful fictions and fictional truths. And we come to understand that the best stories are created when all these and other borders are erased.
