Fiction Writing Level 1 Two Day Intensive

This class is temporarily being offered remotely.

at Gotham Writers' Workshop - Online Zoom Conference, New York, New York 00000

Fiction is a wonderful conjuring act. With only words and the reader’s imagination, a work of fiction can sail across the world in pursuit of a whale, or time-travel to another dimension, or zero in on a few minutes in line at the local bank, enveloping the reader in a made-up story that feels real.  To pull off this feat requires a balance...

As Rhett tells Scarlett in the movie Gone With the Wind, “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.” (In the book version, there’s no “frankly.”) Either way it’s a good line, and you should give a damn about your dialogue. Dialogue is crucial to any kind of story—fiction, nonfiction, any kind of script. Bad dialogue can sink it like a...

Slow emergence—by way of provincial journalism in Nebraska, high-school teaching in Pittsburgh, editorial work on various magazines—did not deter her from the...
