Your Truth in Fiction


May 13th

9.00 a.m to 3 p.m

Union Encinitas. 111 C Street, Encinitas


$80


In this one day workshop we’ll explore that alchemical process of taking the  ‘stuff’ of one’s life and fictionalizing it.   We all have truths we’ve discovered, some of them deeply personal and private and the art of fashioning them into stories offers skittish writers a veil of privacy, a way of telling the truth and telling it slant. 

How far does one go with the act of making it up? Through exercises you’ll play with gender, with age, with setting – all the while exploring the emotional dynamic that’s at the heart of the story you want to tell.  This workshop it open to writers of all levels of experience. 

Here’s a quote from Virginia Woolf to whet your appetite for a foray into fiction

Fiction is like a spider’s web, attached ever so lightly perhaps,but still attached to life at all four corners. 


Class size is limited to 8 writers!
