Exciting plots and larger-than-life characters are the cornerstones of popular fiction and the emphasis of this course. Whether you’re writing romance, mystery, science fiction, or suspense, the principles of writing popular fiction — interesting prose, characters with whom we can empathize, and a story that moves — are key. In this 6-week course, we’ll workshop your short stories and novel chapters, explore the history of the genres, perform writing and idea-generating exercises, and discuss the magazines and publishers looking for your sort of fiction. The goal is to give you a solid grounding in the demands of popular fiction from an editorial point of view, and a better understanding of your favorite genres. 5 Sessions Saturdays 2:00-5:00 pm August 27-Oct 1, 2016 @WeWork Golden Gate (Skipping the week of Sept 3) Cost: $395 Instructor: Nick Mamatas Nick Mamatas is the author of seven novels, over one hundred short stories, and dozens of essays and articles.
