Cooper Street Workshop: Jump-Start Your Fiction

Date & Time

Stephanie Manuzak

This generative fiction workshop will help new writers get started and returning writers brush off the rust. Participants will work through exercises in developing character and plot, generating and combining story elements, and using productive constraints. Our goal is that by the end of the class, you’ll have at least one story idea you can move forward with, plus some strategies to help you find compelling ideas for future work.

COST: $80 General, $15 Camden residents & Rutgers-Camden students
