Reading to Write Workshop

A SIX-WEEK WORKSHOP FOCUSING ON READING, IMITATION, AND EXPERIMENTATION TO EXPAND AND STRENGTHEN YOUR WRITING VOICE

What does it mean to read as a writer? How can we grow as writers by reading great works? In this practical workshop, we will look at six short novels or collections of stories (see list below) and explore through writing exercises and discussion how to create new and surprising stories, as well as discover the techniques and themes you can apply to your own work.

The workshop is devised for writers of all levels who are willing to try out new ways of writing and thinking about writing.
