Workshop Title: “ Creating Fictional Art”

The workshop will focus on the fundamentals of the creative process for any fiction writers, beginning or advanced who aspire to create enduring literature. We will address such issues as what is art; what is distinctive about the way the artist addresses the world, the inner self, and the objects to be created; and what are  the essential characteristics of fiction as an art form. Perhaps most importantly, how do I maintain creative control of the story writing process .
