8-Week Intermediate Fiction (with Kate Senecal)
In this course designed for writers with some workshop experience, we'll explore foundational elements of craft through structured critique, analysis of published short stories, and in-class writing exercises. Writers will learn new strategies or sharpen existing ones around identifying the moving parts of fictional narratives and gaining greater control of the elements in the writer's toolbox. All participants will have a chance to workshop a story with the group and receive detailed feedback from members of the class and the instructor. This workshop is a supportive, light-hearted deep-dive into the inner workings of short fiction. Open to prose writers who have completed PVWW's Introduction to Fiction Workshop, or by permission of the instructor (based on a work sample).
KATE SENECAL received an MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts in 2013. She is the Assistant Director of Pioneer Valley Writers' Workshop, and a workshop facilitator for Writers for Recovery in Vermont. Her fiction has been published in The Laurel Review, The Foundling Review, and in Storychord.com, where she was the fiction editor for two years before it stopped publication.
