Are certain sections of your fiction feeling a little thin? Sort of flimsy, here and there? Or otherwise unconnected, in a way that’s hard to pin down? If so, then “How to Write Layered Fiction” might be for you!
In this single-session craft-focused class, we’ll take a crack at practical approaches to creating interconnected, layered, and weighty works of fiction. Through a sequence of interactive exercises, you’ll explore several helpful concepts, all of which you’ll have the chance to apply to your current projects and drafts—we’ll discuss “narrative density,” consider what your characters are “in the middle of,” and practice “lingering,” among other things.
The goal is for you to leave this class with new tools and fresh ideas that you can immediately
put to use in your projects.
