Alice Osborn 
Write From the Inside Out 

Daytime Fiction Class with Alice Osborn 

Want to write your novel this year? Sick and tired of the stops, starts and general non-motivation? Then jump into this four-part class and get accountability.

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 story will emerge without cliché.

Taught by experienced fiction editor Alice Osborn, in this month-long workshop, we’ll dive deep into the craft of storytelling, along with discussing point of view, setting, dialogue and pacing. Alice will give prompts to strengthen and support your work. Sharing will be highly encouraged.

Intermediate writers are encouraged to attend. Intermediate writers are writers who have been working on their craft for at least a year, have invested time and money into their craft and/or have publicly shared their work—prior publishing is NOT a required for this class.

Required Reading: A Land More Kind than Home by Wiley Cash and Writing Fiction: A Guide to Narrative Craft (9th Edition)
