Fiction writing is the art of lying to reveal a truth.

Over the course of our sessions, we will develop an understanding of how good fiction works, and learn how to use elements of craft — voice, structure, point-of-view, dialogue, etc. — to create convincing, compelling stories. We’ll also explore what Dorothea Brande called “the duplicity” of writing: “The unconscious must flow freely and richly,” even as “the conscious must control, combine and discriminate.”

Meets Wed Oct 19 and 26 and Nov 2, 9, 16 and 30.
