Fall 2020 Writing Workshop

 

“True, Not False, Lively, Not Dull”: A Writing Workshop
Taught by Susan Tacent


Dates: Mondays, 2020 September 21, 28, October 5, 12, 19, 26
Time: 6:30-7:45
Place: Zoom Online Webinar

E.B. White urges writers to aim for writing that is “good, not lousy: true, not false; lively, not dull; accurate, not full of error.” In this workshop, we’ll consider strategies for drafting, revising, and making words sing in ways that are good, true, lively, and accurate.  

With an eye toward understanding craft, we’ll practice creating character-driven stories that function on several levels, including carrying plot, conveying ideas, and asking the essential questions that drive the best writing. This workshop is designed to be overtly generative, so that participants will come away with a body of new work, and ideas for more.

Along with our weekly meetings, there will be in-class writing exercises, short lessons, and discussions of reading and writing assignments. There will be homework!

“True, Not False, Lively, Not Dull”: A Writing Workshop is funded through the generosity of the Friends of the Rogers Free Library Community Grant Program.

The workshop is free and open to all.
