Odyssey: Read to Write: A Fiction-Writing Workshop

If you want to write like a writer, you have to read like a writer! In this fiction-writing workshop, participants will read excerpts from modern day masters with an eye toward their form and technique. We will examine how they have used dialogue, character development, word choice, tension, climax, and more to dazzle and intrigue. We will then apply these techniques to our own work, through a combination of writing exercises and traditional workshop exercises. Each participant will have a chance to share something with the group, and to receive constructive feedback, as well as to significantly grow his or her arsenal of reading and writing tricks.
