If you feel your prose is ready to achieve some higher end, join us up in the Hotel Coolidge clock tower room for the next Elevated Prose writing workshop.
It’s a snug room, but there’s a place for you at the table. Bring your first attempt at a new genre, your project heading for completion, your short story or novel chapter, your lyric essay, genre-bending journalism or memoir.
No matter what kind of prose you’re writing, you’ll benefit from discussing issues of voice, form, characterization, exposition and integrity.
Fiction plotting and nonfiction narrative require us to understand what makes stories work, what readers need to know and what they need to find out for themselves.
Elevated Prose workshops will be restricted to groups of from 4 to 8 writers, depending on the length of the workshop. Most workshop sessions will meet Thursday evenings from 6 to 8:30 (or 9). Applicants will send a prose sample and describe their present interests or projects; the workshop will combine the most harmonious projects.
