Fiction writing can't be taught, but there must be some way to learn it. In this workshop we will read works by acknowledged masters, by contemporary practitioners, and by one another. One of the most important things other people can teach you is that they will read what you write, so you should keep them in mind. What can you tell them that they do not know? And how can you make them care about it? The workshop will meet once weekly, with student-teacher conferences every other week.
