Sure, you know the skinny on plot, character, and setting, but what are some other tricks of the trade experienced fiction writers use to give their work uniqueness and complexity? This workshop will cover a variety of advanced techniques and include some writing exercises to help you practice them. Bring a pen and paper or your laptop — whatever you need to write! For experienced fiction writers.
