    Are you in the middle of a first draft? Second, third, or when-will-this-be-over draft? Have you already written scenes but need help stringing them into a story? This course will keep you from getting stuck during the writing process with weekly craft lessons on topics like point of view, dialogue, plotting, character arcs, and sustaining tension. Writing prompts will also help you get to that finish line without getting tripped up by writers’ block. You will receive feedback from students and the instructor in a supportive workshop setting so that you can bring your writing to the next level.
