5 Wed., Sept. 18-Oct. 16, 5:30-7:30 p.m., University Center Rm. 208. A cartoon from The New Yorker shows a worried man in his boxers and undershirt, perched on the examining table--with the doctor saying, I am afraid that novel in you has to come out.

Join Gilda Povolo, author and teacher, to learn and practice strategies for transforming the events of your life, or the lives of others, into fiction. Through engaging exercises, discussions and optional peer-review of your writing, whether you are a beginner or seasoned writer, you will emerge with the makings of your own short fiction, or even the framework for a novel.
