Fiction begins with the main character wanting something so badly it hurts. Your job as the writer is to make life very difficult for your main character so a fresh and inventive plot and story will emerge without cliché.
This 3-hour workshop will give you confidence with fiction techniques such as timelines, characters, point of view, revision and more. Alice Osborn will facilitate prompts that will generate new story ideas for your short or long fiction project!
Seating is limited to sign up early!
