Authentic Writing Workshop

Fiction Writing Level 1 Two Day Intensive

This class is temporarily being offered remotely.

at Gotham Writers' Workshop - Online Zoom Conference, New York, New York 00000

Fiction is a wonderful conjuring act. With only words and the reader’s imagination, a work of fiction can sail across the world in pursuit of a whale, or time-travel to another dimension, or zero in on a few minutes in line at the local bank, enveloping the reader in a made-up story that feels real.  To pull off this feat requires a balance...

Dialogue Writing Level 1 Two Day Intensive

This class is temporarily being offered remotely.

at Gotham Writers' Workshop - Online Zoom Conference, New York, New York 00000

As Rhett tells Scarlett in the movie Gone With the Wind, “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.” (In the book version, there’s no “frankly.”) Either way it’s a good line, and you should give a damn about your dialogue. Dialogue is crucial to any kind of story—fiction, nonfiction, any kind of script. Bad dialogue can sink it like a...

Comic Book Writing

This class is temporarily being offered remotely.

at Jacob Krueger Studio - Virtual Classroom

Writing for comics demands a “very particular set of skills,” unlike any other form of writing, but sharing traits of screenwriters and playwrights. The key is being able to think in pictures, and visualize your story in a frozen moment in time of still, single images. Over the four-week class with acclaimed comics writer Ron Marz, you will learn...

Reading Willa Cather with Benjamin Taylor

This class is temporarily being offered remotely.

at 92nd Street Y - Online Online Classroom, New York, New York 00000

Willa Cather was her own raw material and self-transformation was her game. The writer who leapt into the forefront of American letters with O Pioneers! was already middle-aged. Slow emergence—by way of provincial journalism in Nebraska, high-school teaching in Pittsburgh, editorial work on various magazines—did not deter her from the...

We follow people like Sherlock, Hamlet, Katniss, Batman, Lolita, and ________ (fill...
