Pathways, a fantasy writing workshop 

“Touch the wooden gate in the wall you never saw before. Say 'please' before you open the latch. Go through, walk down the path.”Instructions by Neil Gaiman 

 

Over the course of this eight-week workshop, participants will explore what makes their voice as an author unique, how to craft a compelling journey for their protagonist, and how to situate their narrative within a rich and believable fantasy world. 

By the end of the workshop, participants can expect to either complete the first draft of a short story or novel chapter, or rework a piece that they have previously completed.

Steering the Craft: An Introduction to Novel Writing

 

"The story boat is a magic one. It knows its course. The job of the person at the helm is to help it find its own way to wherever it's going."

Steering the Craft: A 21st Century Guide to Sailing the Sea of Story by Ursula K. Le Guin

Over the course of this eight-week workshop, participants will explore what makes their voice as an author unique, how to craft a compelling journey for their character(s), and how to create a strong sense of physical and cultural place within their novel. Along the way, we will learn about various elements of craft that go into constructing a literary narrative (point of view, pacing, physical description, and more).
 

By the end of the workshop, participants can expect to either complete the first draft of a novel chapter, or rework a piece that they have previously completed.
