Emily Chenoweth is offering an advanced fiction workshop at Literary Arts in September. The workshop is limited to 9 students, and there are a few spots left. Registration is by permission, based on manuscript submission.
Course description from Emily:
In this intensive, four-week workshop, students will read and discuss their works-in-progress; it is these texts that will be the primary focus of our time together. Additional class time will be spent considering the topic of the week (a particular matter of craft, selected for its relevance to the work at hand); discussing other published works and the recommended reading (an article or short story); and completing and sharing a writing exercise. In other words, we’ll write together, read together, and discuss the art of storytelling in a structured but supportive and lively environment.
Emily Chenoweth is the author of the novel Hello Goodbye (Random House), which was a finalist for the Oregon Book Award and was named one of the top ten Northwest books of 2009 by The Oregonian. As a ghostwriter, she’s penned four young adult novels, one of which was a #1 New York Times bestseller. A former English teacher and fiction editor at Publishers Weekly, Emily has also written for People, Self, Tin House, Plazm and Bookforum.
