Workshops for the Bored and Isolated
Hey all. I am doing a couple of socially-distant micro-classes for the Alexandra Writers Centre:
Getting to Know You: A Profile Writing Workshop
The world is full of characters waiting for an author. In this workshop, participants will examine how to get to the heart of other people’s stories. We will discuss interview techniques, learn to spot telling details, and engage in active listening – all in order to transform ‘real’ folks into compelling characters on the page.
Telling the Truth: A Narrative Nonfiction Manifesto
How do we refine real life experiences into literature? How do we achieve such alchemy? In this workshop we will learn the techniques of creative nonfiction or, as Marcello prefers to call it, “documentary literature.” Let’s talk about how to approach real world stories with the eye of a creative writer.
