Do you have a story inside, waiting to be told? Come to this workshop and get it out into the world. Share your work with supportive fellow writers. Discuss the fundamentals of writing —narrative, structure, point-of-view, voice — and how they bring a story to life. Ignite your creative impulse by reading and discussing contemporary literature. Exercise your writing muscle by responding to in-class exercises.
This class is for those who are still searching, as well as those who have begun their creative writing projects. Memoirs, novels, short stories, and personal essays are welcome. Continuing students can share new work or carry on with projects they’ve already begun.
Deborah Harris’s piece, “A Mutt for America,” ran in Dissent Magazine, and her short story, “News of My Life,” appeared in The Southampton Review. She teaches creative writing in Dobbs Ferry, New York, and is currently working on a novel. She earned an MALS in literature from Wesleyan University and an MFA in fiction writing from Sarah Lawrence College.
