We don’t have to write alone. Are you in the middle of your first novel or trying out a short story and would like to share your ideas? Are you struggling with a plot or a scene and want some help? Are you looking for some extra motivation to finish a project or are you interested in meeting like-minded young writers? This class will foster a small, friendly, supportive critique group in which participants will learn how to critique someone else’s work kindly and constructively and how to accept suggestions for their own work in progress. We’ll learn on the job about plot, dialogue, character development, scene structure etc. and support each other on our group journey to improve our stories and craft.
