Have fun with a like-minded bunch of scribblers! This is the fifth year our popular Summer Fiction School has run, and the course has its own unique atmosphere.
We show you the basic writing techniques used by professionals, such as creating memorable scenes, transforming your own life experiences into fiction, choosing the right point of view, and writing great dialogue. What is the Hero's Journey? What is Show, Don't Tell? What is the best way to end a story? We offer a supportive group environment in which you can explore your writing ideas and connect to other aspiring writers.
You may have dabbled a bit already, or be writing a novel, or you might simply want to learn how to start. Graduates of our Summer Fiction School also receive a 10% discount on our popular 30 week Fiction / Memoir course.
