Does your writing follow predictable patterns? Are there places you won’t go because you are uncertain of how to leap into the wild landscape of your imagination? How you tell stories depends upon your vision for the writing as well as the audience.

In this two-hour workshop we will explore ways in which our lives compel us to write with our resulting pieces containing only the dust of the true events that may have sparked an idea or character. We will read examples of unconventional writing, and reinvent what is possible for you.

Participants should come to the workshop with at least a first line or an idea. No prior writing experience is necessary. Bring an open mind, playfulness, and a desire to try something new. We will be writing and sharing in this workshop.

Writers.com Class


Liars, Criminals and Lovers:
Story as Character, Character as Story


Coming in January 2023

Weekly Zoom meetings

Long after we finish a story, a well-written character stays with us. In this interactive, generative course, you’ll gain a better understanding of the role of characters in literary fiction—and learn to create fully developed characters that make your readers cheer, cry, rage, or exclaim.

Stories and characters are everywhere. We will explore many stories, from flash fiction to short stories, each with memorable characters, and we will trace a line through them: stories are character. This class is open to anyone at any level.
