Write Your Story: Using Concrete Details - Writer Workshop with Denise Michelle Harris
Tuesday, February 9th , 2010 @ 6:00 - 7:30 p.m., Hayward Main Library, 835 C St. at Mission Blvd., Hayward, CA 94541 (2 blocks from Hayward BART)
Denise Michelle Harris, author of the novel Sweet Bye-Bye, continues her free writer’s workshop series. Details that help readers immerse themselves in a concrete sensory world of a writer’s own making are the lifeblood of good writing. Denise will lead workshop participants in exercises from The Making of a Story: A Norton Guide to Creative Writing by Alice LaPlante, aimed at helping you to select details that will become the basic building blocks of your creative writing. This workshop will be based on Chapter 3: “Details, Details.” Workshop participants can complete the exercises before class, and, time permitting, will have the opportunity to share excerpts from their writing with other workshop participants. Bring your questions and get your creative juices going. Advance registration required - call 510-881-7980 to sign up. For more information, or to obtain the writing exercises, contact [email protected], 510-881-7700.
