Writing Workshop

Monday, April 29 | 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Escribir Borracho, Editar Sobrio (aka:  Write Drunk, Edit Sober)

Gene Fowler famously wrote, “Writing is easy:  All you do is sit staring at a blank sheet of paper until drops of blood form on your forehead.” This one-day workshop is about writing without bloodshed—and without alcohol. It’s about breaking through writer’s block. It’s about the virtues, the challenges, and the exhilaration of letting the story tell itself.  And then—and only then—about the relatively minor scrapes and bruises (and sleeplessness) that come along with editing.
