Learn how to turn your thoughts into stories.
This 6-week session is for creative writers interested in practicing their craft and learning more about the elements of fiction. We will generate new material and experiment with the basics of creative writing—character and plot development, dialogue, setting, and more. Writers will also have the chance to get critical feedback on their work. We’ll end the session with a discussion on publishing and marketing.
Class size is limited so register early!
Please email desiree@rosewriters if interested in any of the above workshops.
