Student Quotes
"Through the course, I have become more aware as a reader. I can still enjoy a good story, yet my attention is now more focused on exactly what is making something work."
- Blair Kraft

"I learned exactly what you promised—craft. I am a much more intelligent reader now, noticing craft in books that I had simply "read" before."
- Heather Ripmeester
 Student
"The readings were excellent examples of each craft element. I saw books I'd read before in new ways, and was introduced to new writers I'd never heard of. The lectures were in-depth and worthy of saving for deeper understanding down the line. Excellent class."
- Karen Aschenbach

Reading Fiction Online

To excel at writing fiction, you must write regularly and also read stories from a writer’s perspective. Painters typically learn their craft by studying the work of masters, and most accomplished writers do the same. Who better to show you the ropes of great fiction than the best in the business?
 
Each week, students focus on an aspect of fiction craft in relation to a specific story. Like works of fine art, these stories are analyzed from various angles as their secrets are revealed. (The reading consists of five short stories, which are provided, and a current novel, which students must obtain on their own.)
 
If you seek to elevate your fiction writing, let those who have been there show the way.
