Fiction is most powerful when it means something, but what do we mean when we say “meaning”? How is that effect achieved? This hands-on master class will go beyond theme and message to explore the many ways in which readers’ minds are stimulated. Questions, parallels, paradoxes, dichotomies, mysteries, moral dilemmas, and more are made practical. Bring a work-in-progress, writing materials and a curious mind to this live, online session with master instructor Donald Maass.
