July 9 -- We have to find a way to make our character feel real and compelling. This session will focus on how to. Robin McLean will guide writers of all levels and goals on a generative writing adventure. Through the use of thought/ writing experiments, writers will "try on" new ways of writing that feel emboldening and unexpected, think of trying on a cowboy hat, a space suit, or ball gown to see what happens. The workshop will be fun, inspiring and energizing. We will met every four weeks on Saturday mornings, from March 19th on to August. Every workshop will be different. Feel free to pop in and pop out. All workshops dates and craft focus in this generative series: March 19 -- Writing deeper: Mining the deepest depths. April 16 -- Dialog as your best friend. May 14 -- Telling not showing. The power of Monologue. June 11 -- "Twilight Knowing" or the known unknown. July 9 -- building character. August 6 -- Playing with Time. Email with questions: firstname.lastname@example.org. All generative workshops are three hours long. Open to all levels and aspirations. Robin McLean worked as lawyer and then a potter in the woods of Alaska before turning to writing. Her first story collection Reptile House won the 2013 BOA Editions Fiction Prize and was twice a finalist for the Flannery O'Connor Short Story Prize. Her debut novel Pity the Beast was published November 2021 by And Other Stories and called "a work of crazy brilliance" and was noted as a best book of fiction of the year in The Guardian. Her second story collection, Get'em Young, Treat'em Tough, Tell'em Nothing is forthcoming, also from And Other Stories, in October 2022.
