IMF 53500
Fiction Writing Workshop

Instructor: Tony D'Souza

Course Description: 

The blank page...what can be more terrifying for a writer? We all know the feeling of starting something new, of not knowing exactly where it is going to go. Isn't it nice to remember that every great work of literature began that same way?

In this workshop-driven fiction writing course, we will discuss process, technique tips, and share with one another what we do when we're staring at a blank page. Then we'll give each other feedback once we've begun to fill a few of them. This course is open to all styles of fiction, from literary, to speculative, to fast-paced genre. We'll read great short stories from Rick Moody, Vladimir Nabokov, Zora Neale Hurston and others. Ultimately, we want to show our fiction to the world and will work on writing query letters and figure out how to pitch to agents. It all starts the same way, so let's begin.
