Fall Writing Workshop

The Fall Writing Workshop
in Fiction and Memoir
10 Wednesdays, 7:00 - 9:30pm
September 27 - December 6, 2017
 (no class November 22)
Elm Street near Davis Square
Instructor: Julia Thacker
"All stories have a beginning, middle and end," writes Flannery O'Connor, "but they do not necessarily appear in that order." Join us for a dynamic fall class in which we explore a variety of new approaches to energize our narratives. Part of each session is devoted to in-class writing exercises in which key memories, vintage photographs and tabloid titles are the starting points for intriguing characters and plots. We will also discuss participants' longer stories which are passed out in advance. 
In this workshop we trust our powers of intuition while honing the elements of craft: character, style, dialogue, scene and dramatic urgency. Find inspiration in the company of other writers as we engage in lively discussion and in-depth critique. For guidance, we examine work by Chimamanda Adichie, Junot Diaz, Louise Erdrich, Karen Russell and Tobias Wolff. At the end of the course we'll discuss how and where to submit your work for publication.
Limited to ten participants.
Cost: $465.
