Dear Middle School Parents,
Here is an exciting opportunity being sponsored by the National Writers Series…
Are you a middle school student with many great stories to tell but are not sure where to get started? Our own Duncan Moran will be teaching a long-fiction writing class this fall at Northwestern Michigan College. Here are the details:
CREATING INTRIGUE: WRITING THE LONG STORY
Tuesdays from September 20 – December 6, 2016, 7-8:30 pm
Northwestern Michigan College, Scholars Hall, Room 205
Instructor: Duncan Moran
Registration Code CRN 4279
Sponsored by the National Writers Series
For middle school students with a passion for reading and writing, this course will provide the inspiration, structure and critical advice needed to write a piece of fiction at least fifty pages long. The class will examine characterization, the interplay between setting, plot, and character, dramatic plotting, and the craft of writing. The class is ideal for young people who love writing and don’t quite know how to give their stories the form necessary to make it work.
About the instructor: With a BA in Literature and History and an MFA in Creative Writing, Duncan Moran has been a writer-in-residence in the Leelanau County Public Schools, taught as an adjunct professor of English at NMC, and taught middle school at the Pathfinder School. With published poems, essays, and short stories, he has also been a recipient of an Individual Artist Award from the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs.
