East Village Fiction Workshop Fall 2010, plus the most affordable editing rates around!

Be part of The East Village Fiction Workshop, Fall 2010 session, in that literary hotbed, the East Village, New York!

The East Village Fiction Workshop
is a supportive and constructive workshop for serious writers of novels and short stories. All levels welcome, as long as you are excited about the craft of fiction, and your own writing. (I also offer private editing and critiques of all forms of writing. See below for details.) I guarantee a lively and inspiring atmosphere to help your work flourish.

In
The East Village Fiction Workshop, we critique your work on its own terms, exploring how the plot, characterizations, setting and style serve your themes, and how you can use the elements of the craft to further develop your novel or story. Our primary task is to "workshop" the stories or chapters you bring to us. But you'll also get inspiring in-class exercises to help you flex your writing muscles and surprise yourself. (Flannery O'Connor: "If there are no surprises for the writer, how can there by any for the reader?")

We'll read published writers as pertain to your work. Your fellow-writers will offer you thorough critiques of your stories or novel chapters, including both what already works, and what could be even better. As the instructor, I'll wrap up the discussions, as well as provide a written analysis of each piece.

The next session of The East Village Fiction Workshop is:

Thursdays, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
October 21 through December 9th, 2010

(
We will not meet Thanksgiving, and will skip one additional week, as a "catch up week," during the term.)
$300
($280 for returning participants)

Everyone is critiqued at least twice. Class maximum, 12; minimum, 4.
Enrollment (via payment) is on a first-come basis until the class fills.
