This fall, I’ll be teaching an introductory creative writing class at the British Council in Dakar, Senegal:

british coucilThe workshop consists of an 8-week class for English speakers (advanced and fluent) and Anglophones introducing them to the fundamentals of writing fiction, including plot, character, setting, and voice. Each class is comprised of a short lecture, exercises, discussion of a contemporary or classic English short story, and two peer-review workshop sessions. By the end of the course, each student will submit one story for online publication.

The class runs from October 27 until December 17, 2015. For costs, sign-up, and more information, see this pdf.
