Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) will host a four-part intermediate creative writing course with writing instructor Christopher Dant. The sessions will take place on Mondays, April 29, May 6, 13 and 20. This creative (fiction) writing short workshop is for those who have some introduction to creative writing, even for those who have written short stories or tried their hand at a novel. This is not a beginning writing class. In this close-knit, interactive and enjoyable 4-week writing clinic, we will delve into the proven techniques of creative writing, re-learning how to create unforgettable characters, writing compelling dialogue and strong scenes and settings, studying the techniques for showing rather than telling, and creating strong points of view. Overall, we will learn how to write compelling stories. This is an opportunity for you to hone and sharpen your fiction writing skills. Each week, students will write short exercises, starting with an assignment before the class meets, and will read your work in a nurturing, supportive, and fun environment that will take your writing to the next level. Class size is limited. Registration is $100 for the four-part course. For more information or to register, please call 802-867-0111 or visit our website at greenmtnacademy.org.
