C-AI 019 TURNING REAL LIFE INTO FICTION • 0 Cr.

Department

All of the Arts

Description:

Writers lead double lives. As participants and observers, we make notes and gather material, all possible grist for fiction. Learn how to mine your life for fiction potential. Shift through memories, recall details, alter facts, play "what if...?" and transform real people into fiction characters. Class includes exercises and idea starters to generate material for a short story or scene for a novel. Working with this raw mosaic, you'll create a short manuscript, for review in a read and critique session.
