The goal of this afternoon workshop for writers of both fiction and nonfiction is to unpack the concept of style in writing. Participants will engage in a sort of literary treasure hunt of examining, defining, and imitating a variety of styles from within the literary canon, and then ultimately consider ways to sharpen, polish, and push the boundaries of our own styles.
Workshops at the Porch are rigorous yet welcoming, encouraging creative expression while sharpening your understanding of craft. Led by instructors with extensive teaching experience, each class focuses on a particular genre, approach, or use of writing, and allows participants to learn from one another in a supportive, friendly atmosphere.
Who's it For:
Both fiction and nonfiction writers who are wanting to push the boundaries of their own style.
When does this class meet?
This class meets on Sunday, July 12th from 2-5pm.
