The course will take place for four consecutive Saturdays, for two hours at a meeting place in downtown Florence chosen for the particular lesson (two of the lessons will be held indoors and two outdoors for our literary strolls). Each lesson will include a discussion of character, plot, and a particular genre chosen by a student. Each student will also receive individual guidance to help them develop their own ideas, insights, and stories.
Introducing yourself – Sharing memories with each other
How should I shape my story? – Conversation with Creative writing teacher, performer, and author Lee Foust
Creating characters – Stroll on the streets of Florence while creating and discussing our characters
Reading our stories – Reading and discussing the students’ stories

It is always great to work with other writers to get perspective on your work and how they see it. I learned a lot about developing characters and writing short stories in this workshop. I especially enjoyed the exercises that we did during the time we were together. It was fun! Thanks! http://www.anamericaninitaly.com
