What's New At AllWriters'?
Want to write fiction? Want to write memoir? Want to write poetry? Learn how at AllWriters’ – in one day! WAUKESHA – Amazing author and teacher Jesse Lee Kercheval comes to AllWriters’ and does the impossible! Kercheval herself writes it all – fiction, memoir, poetry – and in one day, she’s going to teach you how as well! In Miniature Madness: A One Day Workshop in Three Genres, Kercheval encourages writers to do it all! This workshop uses in-class exercises to write miniature, but whole short-short stories, memoir pieces and poems. Designed to be supportive, productive and helpful for every level of writer, beginner to advanced, this one-day class is especially suited to writers who want to explore a new genre or to shake up and revitalize their writing by taking on new challenges. A one-page writing assignment (along with a helpful set of examples to read and inspire) will be sent in advance so students can hit the ground running (and writing). Be prepared to have your writing take off! Miniature Madness will take place on May 12, 2012, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. This event has a fee of $85, which includes lunch, catered by Café de Art!
