From dramatic masterpieces like Angels in America, to top-selling contemporary works of fiction like Lincoln in the Bardo, time and again strong dialogue proves to be an essential part of good story-telling. The goal of this three-hour workshop is to equip writers of any background with necessary skillsets in developing an idea through the conception of character, structure, conflict, and dialogue. Participants should expect to analyze and discuss provided scenes from published plays in class, apply these concepts in writing exercises, and share/read each others’ work at the end of class. Each student will leave the workshop with a new piece of writing that may serve as the first step to a larger work, and are encouraged to keep in touch as they develop!
April 15 - June 3
Experience a wide range of activities to help develop your craft, career and community. Events take place in Manhattan and Queens, on Saturdays and Sundays.
During the last year, I have been teaching a series of unique writing exercises at The New York Public Library. It is now nearly impossible to get a seat in one of these classes, but, fortunately, I've collected my most popular exercises into one book that you can download.
This short book covers topics such as character development, evocative description, interior worlds, and powerful perspective. You can go through these exercises over and over again, and some of them even have advanced steps.
The writer's retreat is set in the snowy foothills of the Catskills. With the perfect mix of writing exercises, activities, and free time, this retreat is an opportunity to recharge and recommit to your craft.
Based in NYC, these conferences are all about getting you in front of literary agents and bestselling authors in a relaxed, intimate atmosphere. Get the feedback and advice you need to further your writing career.
