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...

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...

The Editor’s Eye Level I: Two Day Intensive

This class is temporarily being offered remotely.

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

Every writer needs a good editor to push the work to its best possible state. But your work won’t reach a professional editor unless it’s already in excellent shape. A dilemma, to be sure.

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...

Online Writing About Everyday Life

This class is temporarily being offered remotely.

at The Writers Studio - Online Instructor-led Online Learning, New York, New York 00000

Writers often find their richest material in their everyday lives. This material is easy to overlook as too pedestrian because it’s hard to see what’s so close to us. The exceptional poet James Schuyler revealed his longing for home in writing about his breakfast and Yannis Ritsos revealed his and his fellow prisoners’ anguish in exile in writing...
