Write deeper, write faster, write better. Discover how readers internalize story in heart and mind with Eric Witchey’s Fiction Fluency Seminars.
Gain the tools and skills you need to understand and build stories that readers can’t put down.
Award-winning writer Eric Witchey’s Fiction Fluency Master Seminars focus on mastery of the smallest line-by-line dramatic elements. From the smallest dramatic element, the seminars demonstrate how each larger dramatic element is built from, and in some ways is a reflection of, the previous. The seminars are like Russian dolls. Readers see the whole doll, the story or book, before seeing the smallest doll. Writers need to see the smallest doll in order to create the experience the reader has of the largest.
9-month Intensive Seminar Series
Each seminar in the series layers on a new level of complexity and control that allows the participants to acquire skills that will allow them to create professional-level flash, short stories, novelettes, novellas, or novels in any genre—and, yes, literary is a genre.
Fiction Fluency seminars combine Mr. Witchey’s practical experience publishing fiction in 12 genres with linguistic and cognitive science research on how readers internalize story in heart and mind. The seminars present practicable, executable skills for creation, analysis, and revision of short stories and novels.
The Fiction Fluency Master Seminar Series is intended as an intensive 9-month program to help writers progress their writing to a professional level. To that end, only students who take the first Master Seminar in June will be allowed to progress through the program.
While not required, writers new to Fiction Fluency may want to take the Fundamentals Seminar Series to establish the foundation of creative habits.
Fiction Fluency Master Seminars are offered ONLINE via Zoom.
