CRAFTING STRONG WOMEN: A SERIES OF GENERATIVE FICTION WRITING WORKSHOPS
Award-winning author Jae Mazer and I will follow up our successful March writing workshop with summer learning opportunities. We will once again help writers of all levels to enrich and deepen their depictions of strong female-oriented characters. We will deconstruct the ways in which female-oriented characters in fiction can inspire and intrigue. Then we will roll up our sleeves and flex our own writing muscles! Writers of all genders welcomed. Gather fresh ideas and renewed determination to bring feisty and resilient women to life in your pages! Dates and times t.b.a.
