Upcoming Event Schedule
Denver, one day LitFest intensive: First Draft Lab. Here's a short description:
Writing first draft may be the basic creative writing skill, yet it's seldom taught. The premise of this one-day intensive is that in first-drafting, as in practicing athletics or playing a musical instrument, there is such a thing as “good form”, and that pitfalls and limitations arise from improper technique -- especially over the long run.
Resulting problems may only be apparent on those (inevitable) days when you sit down to write feeling unfocused or uninspired and are at a loss for what to do — or maybe you don’t sit down at all. If you already have a bulletproof strategy for such days, you might not want want to be in this session. It’s open to everyone else.
