Smudgy Notebook Gay City Writing Workshop (WA)

Post date: 08 July 2011
Date: 23 and 30 July 2011 (1-5pm)

Our lives are collections of short stories with characters, conflicts and plot points more riveting than the bestsellers in the supermarket check-out line. Unfortunately, many of us keep our stories quietly to ourselves. Not anymore! This 2-day writing workshop invites students to speak up, putting their stories down on paper in all their juicy detail. Participants will take the raw material of their pasts and - using fundamental literary tools like sensory details, narration and story structure - shape them into the powerful personal narratives where they were destined to be. All participants will have the opportunity to share and receive feedback on their work.

After completing her MFA in creative writing, Charity Burne spent several years teaching writing in New York City colleges. A professional writer and poet, her work has appeared in literary journals such as the Madison Review, Spoon River Poetry Review, and West Branch. She is the poetry editor of the online literary journal Anderbo.com.

Cost: $25
