“Nothing has moved my personal writing further than considering the kinds of decisions made by translators. Do I stay true to the style, the tone, the rhythm, the content, the humor, irony or plot?

Narrative Strategies: A six-week fiction workshop

Are you a fiction writer?

3023616-poster-p-1-8-simple-scientifically-proven-ways-to-improve-your-writing
Wednesdays, March 4-April 8, 2015 from 7:00pm-9:30pm, Victor Wildman is hosting an excellent fiction workshop!

According to Wildman the class will, “explore a variety of ways of constructing works of fiction. We will find our inspiration not exclusively through exposure to other works of fiction (novels, short stories, etc.), but from “real life,” from poems, works of non-fiction, photography, film and music. Each week we will read or see or listen to something that will serve us as a model for the fictions we will make, which we will then discuss in class. A joyful open attitude combined with a commitment to show up each week and do the work is all that I expect and hope you’ll bring.” Click here to register!
