This is an in-person workshop that takes place at Inprint House.
David Mamet says, about writing, “It doesn’t have to be calm and clear-eyed. You just have to not give up.” In this generative fiction workshop, we will commit ourselves to the projects we’ve been dreaming of writing. You will develop ideas for your short story, novella or novel or hone ones you already have, engage with diverse prompts, move on to the drafting process and you’ll receive feedback from your peers. We will also be reading the work of published, noted writers for inspiration. You have a story in you, and we’re going to find it!
