Advanced Weeklong Fiction Workshop: Partnering with the Reader with Akhil Sharma

$1,180.00 Members
$1,330.00 Non-members

Tuition includes an orientation before class starts, five workshop sessions, a one-on-one meeting with the instructor, breakfast and coffee on workshop days, all lunchtime business panels, tickets to the opening and closing parties, a digital one-year subscription to The Sun magazine, and discounted rates at local hotels. 

When we write stories, we are communicating. This means that we have to know what the reader is able to hear and what she will miss out on. Developing an imaginary reader (whether this is the writers who made us want to write, or a dear friend) is a useful device to help us “aim” our stories. This workshop will focus on the double consciousness that is necessary to both write from our heart and also realize that our heart can be confusing to someone who doesn’t know us.

Accepted participants will submit up to 20 pages by May 15, and will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with Akhil during the week of class.
