Some New Fall Courses

Over the next few weeks, the site will be unveiling some new and some old courses for the Fall Term. We are excited to tell you about two new courses being brought to you by instructor, David Blinkhorn. The course descriptions are:

Fiction Workshop

This workshop is a combination of lecture, discussion, and exercises for the first hour followed by work-shopping of your writing with your peers and instructor over the final one and one half hours. Topics for lecture and discussion are theme and premise, scene transition, suspense, tension and conflict, imagery, and foreshadowing. Students are expected to submit work and critique other students’ writing each week. Included in this workshop is a 60 minute one on one with the instructor to discuss issues of concern in your writing.

This two day workshop covers the following topics through lecture, discussion, and in-class exercises: plotting techniques and story generation, tools for keeping your reader spellbound with your story, scene creation, prologues, epilogues, cliff-hangers, scene thrusters, epiphanies and revelations.
