with Kim Suhr

Saturday, March 17, 2018

(Registration Deadline: Mon, March 12)

If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have time to write.

It’s that simple.

                                                                                               ~Stephen King

With the myriad of writers’ conferences, programs and classes, it’s easy to forget that some of our best (and cheapest) writing lessons can come in the form of the books we read—if we know how to approach them as something beyond escapism or entertainment.

In this workshop, we’ll look at specific ways to approach the books we read with an eye toward improving our own weak spots and as models to strive for. Participants will practice applying what they learn from “mentor texts” and develop their own “syllabus” to inform their writing practice.

9:30 am – noon
