We’ve all heard the phrase “write what you know” but writing fiction from real life isn’t easy. We worry about what mom will think. We worry if we have the right to tell the story, or write about a given location. We get stuck in reality — what “really happened” — and our fiction flounders because of it. In this workshop, we’ll explore all these issues and more with the goal of writing powerful fiction that has the authority that can only come from “writing what you know.”
Writers, come with a notebook or tablet in hand, prepared for writing exercises that will bump your writing up to the next level.
