Transforming Chaos into Art: A Workshop in Fiction & Memoir

Transforming Chaos into Art: A Workshop in Fiction & Memoir WEEK 11: August 19 to August 24 TUITION: $600 WORKSHOP: 9am-Noon DISCIPLINE: Multi-Genre OPEN TO ALL ON-SITE HOUSING AVAILABLE

The most helpful writing workshops are ones in which the group acts as a single organism, its sole purpose being to help the piece of work at hand become its best possible self. Memoir, fiction – it’s all storytelling. Whether you’re bringing in pages of a memoir-in-progress or a work of fiction, we approach the page with an eye towards structure, character, voice, place, detail. Find the tenacity and take-no-prisoners courage to do your finest work.

Please submit a 12 page (double-spaced, 12 pt. font) memoir or fiction manuscript to Dawn Walsh at dwalsh@fawc.org by August 10. Also, please bring copies of the same manuscript to the first class meeting (number of copies announced two weeks prior to workshop start date).
