Four-week class

Join me twice-weekly for a virtual fiction workshop where we’ll breathe new life into old stories and/or refine newly finished pieces. This class will suit experienced writers with workshop experience. Students will submit one story each week, to be discussed either Monday or Wednesday. We’ll dive into minutiae: language, sentence structure, and descriptions, as well as “story,” and we’ll ask the hard questions: Why is this piece important? Why should readers care? Occasional in-class writing prompts will address craft techniques as needed, based on submissions.

BettyJoyce Nash is a journalist and fiction writer with an MS in journalism from Northwestern’s Medill Journalism School (1988) and an MFA in fiction from Queens University (2011).

As part of her research for her story, “Laser Vision,” she qualified for a concealed carry permit in 2011. In 2015, she won the F. Scott Fitzgerald contest. Her fiction has been recognized with fellowships from The MacDowell Colony and the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, among other artists’ colonies.
