Lynn Auld Schwartz is a writer, story development editor, and has ghostwritten three books. Her plays and staged readings have been performed in Atlanta and NYC, including Lincoln Center. She founded the Temple Bar Literary Reading Series in NYC, has received two Individual Artist Awards in Fiction from the Maryland State Arts Council, and an Annie Literary Arts Award from the Arts Council of Anne Arundel County. Her stories have appeared in literary journals and she produces and directs the Page To Stage series, which offers regional writers the opportunity to perform their life stories. A graduate of The City College of New York, Columbia University, and The Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theater, Schwartz teaches fiction and memoir at St. John’s College and The Writer’s Center.
Teaching style: Lynn packs her workshops with relevant content — sharing specific techniques and illustrations designed to improve a participant’s writing. There is also ample time for questions, discussion, and in-class writing exercises that put technique into practice. Lynn feels it is important to create an inspiring, supportive, and fun environment.
