I'll be presenting a workshop on "Turning Life into Fiction" at the Fremont public library in Mudelein, IL this month.
In addition to Robin Hemley's writing book of the same name, I'll be mentioning the following texts:
- The Art of Fiction by John Gardner
- Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg
- Stein on Writing by Sol Stein, especially Chapter 17: "How to Use All Six of Your Senses."
Also, one of the exercises in my workshop is based on a Wednesday Writing Workout I posted on our TeachingAuthors blog in this post.
If you have any questions about my presentation, feel free to post it as a comment below or email me through my contact page.
