Event description

Description

This delicious six-session class will focus on food as a touchstone for narratives—fiction or memoir—composed from prompts during free-writes in class. Each week’s session will concentrate on an aspect of craft, such as character, setting, description, voice and dialogue, with food as our subject. We'll be writing about any and everything; food will just be our excuse.

There will be no required reading, but from time to time, the instructor will email links to food-related essays and stories that pertain to our writing in some way, as well as any commentary or information she may wish to add to what is discussed in class. At the end of our six-course meal, dessert will be your own portfolio of prompt-inspired writing to develop and refine in the future.

Class meets Wednesday evenings, 6:30pm-8:30pm beginning September 11, 2019.

Cost: $275 General Admission, $247.50 for current FWR Co-Working members. Partial need-based scholarships are available for this workshop.

To register by check instead of Eventbrite, mail your check and a valid email address to the Flatiron Writers Room, 5 Covington Street, Asheville, NC 28806. You will be registered when we receive your check, space permitting.

Marjorie Klein's first novel, Test Pattern (Wm. Morrow Publishers, 2000; HarperCollins/ Perennial 2001, now an e-book) was a Barnes and Noble "Discover Great New Writers" selection. Her narrative nonfiction has appeared in various publications, including 20 years of free-lance work for Tropic, the Miami Herald's former Sunday magazine.
