Fiction Writing Level 1 One Day Intensive

at Gotham Writers' Workshop - Hell's Kitchen 555 8th Ave Ste 1402, New York, New York 10018

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...

Children’s Book Writing Level I One Day Intensive

at Gotham Writers' Workshop - Hell's Kitchen 555 8th Ave Ste 1402, New York, New York 10018

The quiet magic of Goodnight Moon grows into the zaniness of Dr. Seuss and widens into the dazzlement of Harry Potter then matures into the straight talk of Judy Blume and the gritty reality of The Outsiders. Such is the amazing journey children take through books. These stories are a treasured part of childhood and they linger for a lifetime. To...

Dialogue Writing Level 1 One Day Intensive

at Gotham Writers' Workshop - Flatiron 30 W 16 St, New York, New York 10011

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...

But what happens when you pick...
