“Keep a notebook. Travel with it, eat with it, sleep with it. Slap into it every stray thought that flutters up in your brain. Cheap paper is less perishable than gray matter, and lead pencil markings endure longer than memory.”   — Jack London

Class Starts February 3, 2022

Immersive Fiction

A story is a plot, characters, setting—but where it comes alive, or doesn’t, is in its details.

Instructor: Kathy Koja — Lit Reactor

Writers will learn to identify sense details—where writing actually meets the world, and becomes real in what readers can see, sense, feel, taste, hold—and how to create fully-realized, immersive fiction. This applies to any genre, any length work, and any writer who wants their work to be fully engaging. In our final session, we’ll explore ways that other media could be incorporated to further enrich the sense landscape.

Participants should have a finished piece of short fiction or novel excerpt ready for revision.

Coming February 8, 2022

Narrator as Cinematographer

Instructor Joshua Mohr — Lit Reactor

Third person POV can read every bit as close as first — it just takes some skill to manufacture that ever important camaraderie between the reader and main character. 

Class size limited to 16 students!
