Writing First Person

Writing First Person
Why do we write? Because we love language? Because we love sharing? Because we have something to say? We will look at first-person essays, short stories, and the first pages of favorite books, and discuss voice, character, dialogue, structure, style, plot, and audience. Students will hand in regular 250-word assignments and also follow prompts for writing in class. We will do a lot of supportive critiquing. While we will talk about agents, editors, and how to submit work, the focus will be on writing well -- and then revising until the work shines.
