ONLINE ONLY: Karen Thompson Walker Fiction Workshop

Friday, August 7, 2020, 1:30 AM - 3:00 AM

Register now for this workshop with an award-winning author.

This is a live, interactive workshop. Registered participants will receive a Zoom link the day before the program.

This fiction workshop will focus on beginnings. Through a series of in-class writing exercises and readings, we will explore what makes for a great opening page. This discussion will serve as a jumping off point for a wider conversation about various craft elements, including voice, point of view, dialogue, description, detail, and character. Participants will need a pen and paper.
