One-Day Seminar! Family Ties—Mining The Personal for Tension-Filled Fiction

I'll be teaching a one-day seminar for Writing Workshops Los Angeles. Information of the seminar below: 

As writers, we strive to capture the truth on the page. We conjure up painful and sometimes exhilarating moments from our own lives and translate them into the experiences of three-dimensional characters. This one-day seminar introduces ways writers can unearth the intimately personal and repurpose those moments into compelling fiction. Participants will explore their own histories with in-class exercises that urge them to write bravely. The most personal experiences make for the most powerful fiction. This seminar is an interior mixtape where fiction and authenticity will flow freely.

This seminar is open to students of all levels. It will be held in Los Feliz, where coffee, sparkling water, and light snacks will be served.

Limited to eight students! Register here!
