In order to fully communicate our stories, we must have control over language and sentences. This workshop will pay special attention to the crafting of sentences, concrete detail, and logical progression. We will explore fundamental concepts of structure, character development, pacing, and tension through writing exercises, discussion, short readings, and our own stories.

This five-week course is suitable for all levels as well as students who have taken previous courses with Robin Tung.
