The course focuses on the presentation and critique of your work and is designed to help you sharpen your skills. Emphasis is placed on honing each story’s structure, characterization, narrative, description, and style with the aim of creating publishable work.
Advanced Fiction Writing is for writers who have completed Level I or those with fiction-writing experience who are prepared to discuss all of the fundamental concepts of the craft. Writers often repeat Advanced Fiction Writing as they continue to develop projects.
We offer Advanced Fiction for writers working on short stories and Novel Writing II for writers working on novels. You are, however, welcome to work on material in Advanced Fiction that would eventually end up in a novel.
Prerequisite: Fiction Writing I or the equivalent.
