IGNORE THE OBVIOUS PATH WORKSHOP

with Charlie Varon

Sunday, January 6, 2019 | 10am – 4pm | The Marsh SF 
Tuition: $125 full Tuition due at registration
$95 for early bird registration by December 6, 2018
-Note: This is a writing workshop. There will be no performance

Workshop Description:

My experience is that by strengthening craft, you perceive more and become not just a stronger writer, but a slightly different person.

Everyone has a story to tell.” How often have we heard these words? They seem so simple. But how we write stories is far from simple.

This workshop is for writers at all levels who want to stretch and surprise themselves.
A fun day of playing around with different narrative strategies, including:
* expanding and compressing time
* linking stories to digressions
* shifting point of view
*working with both terse and lush prose styles.

Goals are to have fun, expand your writing “palette,” enlarge your craft.
