$189 Members | $210 Nonmembers
Thursdays, 9/20/18 – 11/8/18 | 6:30 PM – 9:00 PM

This workshop-heavy class will provide writers at least three opportunities to have a full class workshop. Students will have one-on-one feedback sessions with both instructor and classmates. Participants are required to have fiction work ready to workshop at the outset of class or be able to produce material week-to-week. Students will be asked to write, read, and provide feedback to peers, both orally and in writing, throughout the 8 weeks. In this advanced fiction workshop, we will focus on voice and character development: two cornerstones to truly engaging, effective fiction. To enroll in the class, students must submit a writing sample of at least 750 words to the instructor. Email sample to programs@writerhouse.org.

About the Instructor: Kristie Smeltzer’s work has appeared in The Doctor T.J. Eckleburg Review, Apeiron Review, Eclectica Magazine, The Florida Review, and So to Speak. Kristie is currently working on three novels. She earned her MFA at the University of Central Florida.
