Course Description

Join us for a series workshops for writers of fiction and creative non–fiction. Each intensive workshop offers an overview of essential elements of the craft of writing: developing character and voice; creating a sense of place and the use of objects and atmosphere; and, learning and honing the skills of self­-editing and revision. Sessions will com­ bine craft lectures, analysis of short in–class readings, genera­ tive writing exercises, and work­ shopping or sharing your work with and receiving feedback from the group. Workshops will be held monthly at the Temple University Ambler campus on Saturday mornings from 9 AM to 12 PM. Choose one, two or all three classes.
