8-Week: Writing Noir Fiction

$375.00 Members
$405.00 Non-members

Dennis Lehane once famously defined noir as “working-class tragedy,” where instead of falling from great heights, the protagonists fall from the curb. Eddie Muller has a slightly different take, writing that, “Noir does not call for ironic detachment. It calls for the ultimate commitment: a willingness to go to the darkest places and remain compassionate in the face of hopelessness.”

In this class, writers can expect in-class discussion of short workshop submissions, with verbal feedback only, as well as some in-class writing.
