Event description

Description

This is the second of three-part series designed to allow emerging writers (high school writers and above) to learn more about the process of writing, essential craft elements, how to build writing community, and what it means to be a published author. This workshop format will be interactive, with conversation, writing prompts, as well as exercises to develop your personality as a writer.

Writers/creators can take the workshop as a stand-alone or attend the full series. Each session is $20.

Writing for Others | September 29 - In this workshop, we explore the craft elements of fiction and non-fiction, with emphasis on the process of writing and developing a 'writer's eye' through noticing, observation, and relishing the odd detail. We'll discuss point of view, voice, and the rules of narrative structure and how to break them. We'll rifle through "the writer's toolbox" to discover what you need to make your writing clear and dynamic, so it can find a receptive audience.

Writing for Publication | October 27 - NOTE: THIS WORKSHOP WILL TAKE PLACE 2 PM - 4 PM. What does it mean to be published? How does a writer go about creating an online footprint, build an author's platform, determine how to tell their story as a writer to the world? This session will explore traditional and self-publishing models (the pros, the cons), literary citizenship, develping content for online journals, magazines, and blogs and the very basics of creating an online presence, writing an author bio, and becoming who you want to be as a writer and a creator. Tickets go on sale September 30th. (Registrants who attend the previous two sessions will have priority registration for this session.)


Workshops are faciliated by Steve Mitchell and Deonna Kelli Sayed.
