In addition to workshopping our own fiction, we read published stories that focus on different elements of craft: showing versus telling, point of view, characterization, dialogue and narrative.
When we discuss the class’s creative output, we strive to isolate these elements as much as possible, homing in on problematic areas. In addition, we talk about publishing and how to begin a writing career.
