Summer Fiction Writing Course for the Community taught by Stephen Rea

This class is a shortened version of Stephen's popular Writing Well-Crafted Fiction course that the Walker Percy Center has been offering for years. Running for just June and July, this brief and informal course will examine students' work, focusing on ways to improve your novel, short stories or family histories. For the greatest benefit we recommend that you take the full eight-week full introductory class that will start again in September - but if you can only sign-up in the summer, or you have limited free time, then this will give you a good foundation to sharpen your story-telling skills.

Stephen Rea is originally from Northern Ireland but has lived in New Orleans since 2004. A former national newspaper journalist in the UK, he is the author of the book Finn McCool's Football Club, a tale set against Hurricane Katrina centered around the Irish pub in Mid-City.
