Subtext will be the theme of this fiction workshop, open to novel chapters, short stories, and flash fiction. We’ll read Charles Baxter’s The Art of Subtext, which is a short but challenging book, and we’ll parse out his meaning together as we discuss craft, structure, and narrative choices. Each student will have his/her work presented to the group for discussion twice during this six week course, and receive written feedback from the group. Class is capped at six students, and is open to writers with previous workshop experience. $225. For more information, contact Valerie Fioravanti at valfiora at yahoo.
For writers new to fiction, the Beginning Fiction Workshop starts on October 18th. If you’re interested in fiction 1000 words or less, or want to get better at revising by focusing on economy, precision, and purpose, Flash Fiction begins November 14th.
