I'm teaching a 6-week writing workshop in NYC! It'll be Thursday evenings starting October 15th, and I'll likely bring things I've baked from time to time, if snacks are your thing (they are absolutely my thing). Space is very limited, so I encourage folks to apply soon.
Complex characters are essential to a successful work of fiction; they test the boundaries of our ideas and compel readers to invest in a story through its end. This workshop will focus on the relationship between character development and narrative momentum. Through reading, writing and discussion we will examine methods to make our characters feel real, and our fiction energetic. During this six-week intensive workshop, each student will workshop twice. Following their in-class critiques, students will meet with the instructor for individual conference.
