Everything I Know About Writing, I Learned from John Williams [Steve Almond]
All Levels | These workshops will reveal just how much we can learn through a close reading of a single work. By laser-focusing our attention on one brilliant piece, we’ll be able to deconstruct all aspects of craft: narration, characterization, plot, pacing, scenes, and exposition. Each class will include a writing prompt, so students can learn by doing. Strap in—this is going to rock.
For this class, we’ll be discussing John Williams’ novel Stoner. If you come to class having read the book, you’ll get the most out of our conversation.
All students in reading classes will receive a book club discount on the instructor’s reading list at the Elliott Bay Book Co.
