Methodical Madness: A Creative Prose Workshop

by Heather Newton on October 21, 2016

Looking forward to writing more and better in 2017? Join me Monday evenings starting February 13th (6-8:30 p.m.) for ten weeks of Methodical Madness with the Great Smokies Writing Program:

This course is for writers of fiction and creative non-fiction who enjoy honing their craft in a workshop setting.  Students should come committed to giving and receiving thoughtful criticism as members of a community of writers.  You will submit two pieces of work for group critique. We will also do in-class writing in response to prompts. Our text will be The Making of a Story: A Norton Guide to Creative Writing by Alice LaPlante, who, along with Shakespeare’s Hamlet, reminds us that when it comes to writing, “Though this be madness, yet there is method in’t.”  (If you already own a different edition of the LaPlante Book, Method and Madness: The Making of a Story, that is acceptable).

Lots of other great workshops and instructors this spring as well. Check out the offerings at: Great Smokies Spring Courses
