Advanced Fiction

See what people are saying

  • “The Advanced Fiction workshop is the logical continuation of the other Fiction workshops (The Short Story, Flash Fiction, The Novel, Read Like a Writer, and Revise Your Fiction). Technical aspects such as point of view, tone, structure, etc., are reviewed in depth, together with more ambitious and personal questions about the writing process: Why do I write? What kind of stories do I want to write? How can I make use of all my [emotional and intellectual] resources to write more effectively? For me, the two days were an immersive reflection about writing, surrounded by writers with similar concerns.”

  • “Advanced Fiction is an exciting deep dive into literary techniques – supported by well-chosen, detailed examples from literature. [The instructor] has a unique ability to support and encourage the writing process. I was amazed to see the creativity and skill unfolding in the pieces produced by the group. Personally, I was finally able to write a piece that had been inside me for a long time but didn’t want to come out.”

  • “I got so much out of this weekend! [I received] so much help in seeing how often issues can block a story. The workshop brought me back to productivity.”

  • “Thank you for the workshop, which I truly appreciated. The structure and content were exactly what I’d hoped for. The workshop gave me a lot to process, and lots of notes and ideas to look into; I truly hope that I will give myself the gift of doing just that.”
