Workshop description: 

"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you,” Maya Angelou famously said. I respectfully disagree. An even greater agony is starting a book and getting lost in the fog of your own imagination. In this workshop we will explore the fundamental components that keep a novel or memoir on track, that shine a light when you're veering towards the dark, and that free you to be as imaginative as you can possibly be.

We will do in-class exercises to help you gain a better understanding of essential structural elements and learn innovative techniques to create memorable characters, vivid worlds and skillfully told stories that will keep you writing pages and keep your readers eagerly turning pages to a satisfying conclusion.
