  • I’m a writer, too!

    On 12.01.09, I estimated that I had about 32,000 words left to write to complete my first draft of the opening book in my paranormal mystery series, THE LOST & FOUND.

    Here's my progress updated 2.12.10:

Online workshops

Writer’s Rainbow Winter 2010 Writing Workshops (online)

•MRC 101A/B: Rabbit’s Hat: (for magical realist writers) 
beginners and intermediate
Duration: Four sessions of generative writing aided by prompts
Format: Online/NonInteractive
Dates:  Mar 5 through Mar 26 (Fri)
Description: In this four-week online workshop, you’ll use your time generating new work and learning strategies for incorporating literary magical realism into your prose. Participants are expected to submit a minimum of 2 new drafts for review over the course of this workshop and will receive weekly prompts to get them started. I will offer my feedback on what works, what could be improved, what questions might linger, and how well you were able to capture elements of magical realism. My aim is to nurture your understanding of literary magical realism so that it becomes a natural and organic direction for your writing.
                This class is appropriate for writers who are either new to literary magical realism or somewhat familiar with literary magical realism or speculative fiction. My specific focus will be on assisting writers in generating new work that shows an understanding and/or mastery of literary magical realism. Handouts will offer writing strategies and some light supplemental reading. This class is limited to 8 members and will meet with me through a private platform online. There is an orientation period so that participants can familiarize themselves with the platform (which is pretty easy to use). There is no live chat session for this workshop; the focus for now is to learn by doing; that is, generating new magical realist work and acquiring new tools for honing those skills.
Texts/Materials: Announced once class is filled
Class Min/Max: 4/8
Registration deadline: Feb 17, 2010
Platform orientation: Feb 25, 2010
