Creative Writing Workshop Description
This five-day course will explore the creative writing process, focusing on understanding and applying the tools used in both short stories and novel-length works. These include the various ‘point of view’ techniques, the use of subtext to engage the reader, inner and outer dialogue, dialogue versus narration, development of an internally consistent voice, methods of engaging all of the senses, free indirect discourse, and characterization.
We will meet for two hours daily (three on Monday and Friday) and prepare writing assignments based on local subjects for in-class discussion and critique. Additionally, Thursday evening we will meet at the Lubec Memorial Library for a public reading where participants will have the opportunity to present either their own work, or a favorite passage from another author, to a public audience.
Please bring your laptop or preferred writing materials. If you have a work-in-progress that you would like to have reviewed, please bring it.
Writers should be eighteen and over. Class size is limited to eight.
