First We Read, Then We Write

Loading Events

In the end, you write largely what you have read. We all hope to be original, of course, and to develop that most elusive quality: our own voice. But just as we learn to speak by hearing others speak around us, it’s our lifetime of reading that largely makes us who we are as writers. So, what are you reading, and how? In this workshop, you will experience seven techniques for becoming more conscious of yourself as a reader, deepening the experience of reading itself, and thereby grow and mature as a writer.
