From Idea to Opus: Getting Your Story on the Page

06/27/2020 - 9:30am to 12:30pm
Fiction
Workshop

It’s a conundrum that has frustrated writers since humans first put chisel to stone: There’s a story inside of you. You know it. You feel it! You know that it’s good and that it can be amazing. But how do you take what you know is a good story and bring it alive on the page?

The Freshman Fifteen: Create a Compelling First Chapter

06/20/2020 - 9:30am to 4:30pm
Fiction
Workshop

Your first fifteen pages need to thrust the reader right into the action of the story. Oh, and also inspire an emotional connection to the character. While simultaneously providing just enough description to set the scene—without forgetting to plant some tantalizing questions to keep us turning the pages! Oh, and making the right promises about the story to come, too. And is there any way you could sneak some zesty dialogue in there while you’re at it?

Character: The Beating Heart of Your Story—And How to Find It!

06/13/2020 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm
Fiction
Workshop

Characters are the center of our stories. Their problems become our problems—and our readers’ problems. Their failures and redemptions give us our plot and themes. So how do we make them into full-bodied, complex leaders of our stories? How do we show our readers who our characters are, inside and out? How do we ensure that we don’t betray our characters by leading them in ways that are not true to the person we have created?

The Journey of Poetry

06/07/2020 - 3:00pm to 6:00pm
Poetry
Workshop

Poetry uses language in a way that is not available to us in everyday life. As with a song, a poem can elevate and capture a specific experience—an image, memory, or sensation—and connect people in a powerful way. Whether you are a practiced poet or a total “newbie” who wonders what poetry is “about,” this workshop will provide a jump-start to get you into a writing practice. Come join us in a supportive, inspiring workshop environment in which we will explore found poetry, song lyrics, spoken word, and literary poetry from a wide range of contemporary authors.

Workshop

You have a memoir—a life story—that you know needs to be written. But how? There is so much to tackle in crafting a memoir, no matter the length. Where do you begin? How do you shape a memory into a story that engages readers? How do you sustain their interest?

Crafting Literary Fiction

06/04/2020 - 6:00pm
Fiction
Workshop

If you want to be a writer, you need to read like a writer. This fact—which might seem obvious—eludes people more often than you would think. In this workshop, we will hone our writing skills by learning how authors influence a reader through structure and style choices, to truly understand how fine pieces of literary fiction are crafted.
