Fiction Writing with Kevin Basl

4 week online fiction fundamentals workshop with Kevin Basl. Feedback, writing prompts, & community!

This 4-week online course will teach the fundamentals of fiction writing. Each week, we will read a different short story to highlight the basic elements (plot, setting, description, perspective and characters), and respond to a writing prompt or two, to help students write their own stories. Every Monday, we will meet via Zoom for discussion and feedback (7:00 PM to 8:00 PM EST). We will also utilize the Blogger platform, for online posts and writing assignments.

Cost: $100 AD/Military Veteran/Spouse, $125 Civilian
