Guides on Craft and The Writing Life

Sat, 29 Apr, 2017 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

This workshop will offer highlights from a number of the classics, including E.M. Forster’s Aspects of the Novel, Edith Wharton’s The Writing of Fiction, and Henry James’s famous prefaces to the New York Edition of his books. From these oldies but goodies, we will turn to fiction’s more recent gurus and apostles (John Gardner, Charles Baxter, Robert Olen Butler, James Wood) for some controversial do’s and don’ts. We will also look at accounts of the writing life, and the host of books which have sprung up following Francine Prose’s Reading like a Writer. This class is designed as an introduction to the guides and resources available to the fiction writer, and will also include “warm-up” exercises. At the end of class, the instructor will distribute a general bibliography as well as suggestions tailored specifically to the participants.
