Monday Night 8-Week Mixed Levels - August 2018

from 470.00

This workshop is built for fiction writers at any point in their journey (beginners through intermediate), both short story writers and novelists. Led by Blake Kimzey, named one of D Magazine's Artists to Learn From in 2018, the course is designed around in-class workshopping of student manuscripts and discussion of some assigned outside reading. We'll study Benjamin Percy's craft essays, which will help students write stories with narrative momentum without sacrificing literary merit or voice. Each week we’ll focus on craft and discuss published work, though the central focus of each class meeting will be the discussion of student work. Student fiction will be workshopped in a supportive, respectful, and constructively critical environment with the goal of improving an individual’s voice and vision for their piece via traditional elements of craft.

Each writer will have two opportunities to have his or her work critiqued in class (up to 25 pages each time) and will receive typed feedback from both the instructor and his or her classmates. A private conference with the instructor is included. Students are required to purchase a copy of Thrill Me by Benjamin Percy as the foundational text for this course.

Refund Policy: included in the price of each multi-week workshop is a $100 non-refundable enrollment fee, required for all multi-week workshops. If a student drops a multi-week workshop up to 5 days before the class starts, all but the enrollment fee will be refunded. After the 5-day grace period, there are no refunds, and students will be required to pay the full course fee.

We have this refund policy because we keep our classes intentionally small and most of our classes go to waitlist. Dropping a class at the last minute or after the class starts means that someone else who wanted to be in the class cannot participate, and so we don't offer refunds after the 5-day grace period. For a writing workshop to work, enrolled students must be dedicated to the class.
