This three day workshop will help writers develop a draft, learn to self-edit and provide valuable feedback. Each day we will look at specific techniques and examples, and do in-class exercises, focusing on the scene as a microcosm of the larger work and as a vehicle to explore narrative techniques. Participants will submit work in advance.
