Story, Truth, and Beauty, Baby!


with Barry Wightman

Dec 8, 2018

Ready to take your writing to the next level? Looking for ways to amp up your prose, streamline it, make it jump from the page? Like great music, great fiction is built from magic moments that produce shivers—riffs, choruses and solos that enchant the reader. Story, truth, and beauty, baby!

In this workshop, we’ll dial into how curiosity, rhythm, sensory detail, and tone can combine to produce that magic everybody loves.
