Building on narrative techniques and strategies we have explored at The Writers Studio, fiction writers, memoirists and poets will work on sustaining persona narrators across full story arcs in longer works. Looking closely at the interplay of story-telling elements, such as scene, dialogue, themes, character development and stylistic flow, in story and poetry collections, students will share full length drafts (up to 5000 words or cycles of 3-5 poems) that began in Writers Studio classes. Feedback will deal with creating and sustaining engaging persona narrators beyond our normal limits. Class is open to students with three or more upper level (intermediate and above) Writers Studio classes.
