Literary Cleveland Fiction Workshop In-Person
Write Now: Free Fiction Workshop
Tue. May 2-23
Instructor: Dahlia Fisher
Generate new fiction in this free four-week class designed to kick your writing into gear. Each week we'll share our writing, find inspiration in short fiction readings, and respond to in-class exercises to get going on the next piece. Throughout the class we'll discuss craft, experiment with genres, develop characters, and find out what sparks our own process. Presented in partnership with CH-UH Libraries.
