Sarah Elizabeth Schantz, author of the upcoming novel Fig, presents a four-week course on the Secrets in Ficion. The secret behind writing a good story (whether it’s flash fiction or a novel) is writing believable but unique characters; the secret to writing these characters is to know what their secrets are. Attendees will also get the chance to practice and finesse fiction elements such as plot, dialogue, setting, pacing, and character development. The event takes place at Windwor's Boardwalk Gallery and starts on Thursday, January 29 with subsequent classes on February 2, 12, and 19.
