Writing Workshop with John Dufresne at The Seaside Institute
The short fiction workshop will meet Jan. 29-31 from 9 a.m. - Noon at the Seaside Institute to discuss the stories you’ve written. Dufresne will address concerns about writing and storytelling and lecture on narrative techniques and the fiction writing process. Writing exercises designed to give imaginations opportunities will complement the workshop. Dufresne will also meet individually in conference with each student. In the late afternoon, students will gather for social time and informal discussions of the writing business. Dufresne says, “You’ll come to the conference with an agenda—what it is you hope to learn—and we’ll do our best to see that your agenda is met.”
Space is limited to 12 writers with short story manuscripts (no more than 25 pages). However, a reduced rate is offered to those who do not yet have a completed story, but would like to attend and experience a workshop.
Tuition with manuscript: $450 (Cut-off date for manuscript registrants is December 31, 2014)
Tuition without manuscript: $350
