SBWC is pleased to offer a year long, advanced course on the art and craft of fiction writing. This follow-up to the Fiction Essentials course will focus on the students’ own work, providing an in-depth look at the elements of fiction including POV, dialogue, setting, scenes, narrative summary, characterization, and story, through workshops, discussion, and lectures.
Please note that this is an advanced level course, and applicants must have completed Fiction Essentials or a suitable equivalent. Students should be prepared write regularly, to share their work in class, and, guided by the instructor, to give and receive on-the-spot feedback at the sentence, paragraph, scene, and story levels, an approach that, while specific to the work at hand, generalizes to all participants.
Note: If an applicant has taken Fiction Essentials, a writing sample is not required with the enrollment form. If an applicant has taken an equivalent class elsewhere, please submit a writing sample of 5 to 10 pages with the application.
Rich is a poet, an accomplished songwriter and musician and the author of three novels, The Color of Home, The Big Wide Calm, and The Beauty of the Fall. Previously, he enjoyed a successful career as a technology executive, managing several multi-billion dollar businesses for Fortune 500 companies.
