Come study Fiction with me in Woodstock, NY!

On March 20 I'm teaching a full day workshop as part of the Woodstock Literary Festival!

In this FICTION workshop, you will bring in the first 5 pages of your novel or short story. Please bring enough copies for everyone. After discussing what makes good beginnings--and what doesn't--and reading examples from literature, we'll turn our attention to your pages. Are you getting your story off to the best start? What needs improving? Why? And how? You will then have the opportunity to revise your opening pages and present them for discussion. Please bring your laptop, or whatever you want to use to implement revisions. At the end of this workshop, your novel or story will be ready to continue to write!
