Faves & Frenemies: Learning from Books You Love & Hate

Reading is a writer's greatest tool. In this workshop, we'll discuss how to learn from books you love, books you hate, and everything in between. With close attention to the technique on the page and our own emotional responses, we'll consider the abilities of our favorite writers and the secret skills of writers we detest. Expect to come away with new insights into the works of writers you love, and new tactics for applying those insights to your own work.
