Add to Calendar 2021-04-08 18:30:00 2021-04-08 20:30:00 America/New_York Thursday Fiction Writing Workshop This event will be held virtually on Zoom.  Virtual

This event will be held virtually on Zoom. 

Fiction writing workshop that is great for beginners.

This is a fiction writing workshop which meets once a month for six months to give and receive feedback on participants' short stories and novel chapters. Each month, writers may submit up to four pages of fiction to be workshopped, so participants must commit to reading and critiquing up to 40 pages for each meeting. Everyone will take part in the critiques and learn how to discuss the process of writing and rewriting fiction. 

It's important to the workshop process that we create a community of writers who know and trust each other, so please commit to attending at least five of the six classes. Space is limited and registration is required.

A meeting link will be emailed to registered participants approximately one hour prior to the start of the program. Staff will be available for help with connecting to Zoom and technical issues beginning 15 minutes prior to the program. You will need a device with audio and/or video and an internet connection to join. If you have questions about this program, please contact Laurie Kincer at the South Euclid-Lyndhurst Branch at 216-382-4880. 

Instructor Eric Anderson has published a novella Isn't That Just Like You? and a collection of poems The Parable of the Room Spinning. His writing has appeared in The Sun, Artful Dodge, and the North American Review.
