-no experience or second language necessary- just a fascination with words.
“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? How can I capture all of these things–all of these parts of myself–and pour them into a single line?”

Are you a fiction writer?
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!
