This course is for anyone who wants to get better at writing fiction, from the complete beginner to someone with a finished novel under their belt. Writing well means striking a paradoxical balance between instinct and judgement. The course will address both aspects: the spontaneous, free, instinctive impulse towards self-expression; and the complementary need for understanding the goals of storytelling. Together we will sharpen your sense of how a story works and discover that even the low points – distraction, hopelessness, stuckness – can provide invaluable assistance towards the final goal of truly finishing.
