This entry level course emphasizes the basic elements of fiction writing for publication. The student is given a series of handouts with course background and suggested exercises for each class. The approach is “adult enrichment.” The class atmosphere comes from a workshop setting wherein the students read and critique their work. The goal of the work is to provide a standard understanding of approaches to writing from the craft side as well as the creative process. The learning is based on experiential as well as subject matter learning.
