Fiction Class January 2022

  Climb Into Their Skin “ You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view … until you climb into his skin and walk around in it .” To Kill a Mockingbird   As writers, we spent much of our time in our character’s skin and the world in which they walk, and our goal is to bring our eager readers along with us on this journey.    What is it that makes  you  keep turning the page when you pick up a book?

Lyrical Prose Workshop--Join me!

Lyrical Prose: Raise Your Writing to the Next Level by Georgina Key Two Saturdays Nov 6  &  Nov 13 from 1-4 Do you enjoy stories that immerse you in place so you can smell the sea air or that describe an object so acutely you can feel it in your hand?  Finding a poetic cadence, adding sensory detail, or distilling profound meaning in just a few select words can raise your writing to another level that sets it apart from mere plot driven storytelling. I will offer you techniques to incorporate lyrical writing into your prose that doesn’t take away from the story itself, doesn’t bog it down with unnecessary detail but instead adds depth and nuance to every aspect, including character, theme, place—the opportunities are endless! We’ll work from generative prompts in class; you may bring samples from current works in progress that you’d like to enhance with lyricism, and we’ll look at some of my favorite lyrical passages as inspiration.
