at Gotham Writers' Workshop - Hell's Kitchen 555 8th Ave 14th Flr. 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.

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...

Basics of Narrative Writing

at Newmark Graduate School of Journalism - Midtown 219 W 40th St, New York, New York 10018
