Level II

 

Level II builds on the core skills acquired in Level I and introduces techniques specific to fiction and poetry. Fiction writers will be studying how to create tension, write effective dialogue, and craft compelling openings and satisfying endings. Poets will be looking at effective use of rhythm, repetition, line breaks, white space and figurative language.

In Level II you’ll continue to grow your writerly toolkit through weekly exercises and in-depth analysis of poems, stories and novel excerpts. The last quarter of the class is focussed on carrying forward an exercise—building towards a complete story or publication-ready poem. In addition, writers who’ve completed at least one term of Level II have an opportunity to bring in a poem or story of up to 2000 words outside of the weekly exercises for critique. 

Level II workshops run for 8 weeks, except during our 6-week summer term. They meet once a week from 18:30 – 21:00 at Boekhandel van Rossum or Sarphatistraat 213 (see the specific course description for details). Class size is usually 6-10 people.
This course is open to writers who have completed Level I (or who have an MFA in creative writing or equivalent training) and by permission of the instructor. If you’re new to our group, please drop us a line before registering.
Most writers take two to three terms of Level II workshops before moving to Level III.
