Take Risks in Your Writing

All Levels. Spend a day engaged in exercises that will take your writing from flat to four dimensional, tepid to hot, good to compelling. Being risk-averse makes for dull writing, so we’ll focus more on taking risks than on honing techniques. Our three challenge exercises: one to elicit voice, one to get deep inside a character/narrator without going inside their head, and one to turn up the heat. Come prepared to be challenged and take risks.
