We welcome the eight participants from Literati’s first Fiction Writing Workshop, reading original prose as a culmination and celebration of the eight-week course run by Literati bookseller and Creative Programs Manager, Gina Balibrera Amyx. Free and open to the public.
About Literati’s Fiction Writing Workshop: Literati Bookstore’s Fiction Writing Workshop is an 8-week writing intensive to be held in May and June 2019. The workshop will focus on elements of prose–narrative structure, context, and especially, voice. The arc of this course will be shaped by the curiosities and obsessions of the group. Each writer will be workshopped by the group, and will write and receive in-depth, typed critiques of work from other participants and the instructor. At the conclusion of the session, participants will receive two craft texts, as well as three texts selected personally for them by the instructor, to complement and inform their writing, a one-on-one conference with the instructor, and the opportunity to give a public reading of original work. The workshop is taught by Gina Balibrera Amyx, graduate of University of Michigan’s Helen Zell MFA program in Prose, and currently, Creative Programs Manager at Literati. Her writing has been featured in the Boston Review, Ploughshares, Michigan Quarterly Review, and The Wandering Song, an anthology of the Central American diaspora.
