Reading as Writers: Didion and Sedaris (1919)

In this continuing course, we will explore the craft of writing by examining the works of “writers’ writers” through very close reading of their work, with an eye to understanding their technique and style and, through in-class writing exercises, practicing what we might learn from them in a collaborative, creative environment. New Dates: Four Thursdays, March 28, April 4, 18, 25 from 1:00--3:00 p.m.

Point of View (1916)

Point of view is arguably the most intuitive, and yet the most misunderstood element of fiction writing. Join novelist Susan Coll for a two-hour workshop in which we will run through a series of guided prompts designed to help participants understand the elements of point of view as well as how to infuse new energy into an already completed work by experimenting with POV and structure. One Saturday, March 23, 2-4p.m.
