TELLING THE TRUTH: Impacting Your Writing 
with Life & Experience
 

Telling the Truth: Impacting Your Writing with Life & Experience with Allison Hedge Coke
 
Saturday, July 12, 1 PM - 4:30 PM
The Writer's Garret
10809 Garland Rd., Dallas, TX 75218
  

Most people have a hard time being truthful all the time, and maybe that's just fine. Typically we do, for example, often distinguish between white lies and those of greater magnitude; and often we discern a difference in "truth" with a small or a capital "T." So what IS the duty of the writer? Aren't all poems and memoirs "truth"? Doris Lessing described fiction as being more truthful than life itself. When we hear an extraordinary tale, why does it matter to us, as readers or audience, that the story was "totally true"?

Whether you are a writer of fiction, creative nonfiction, screenplays, or poetry, this course will help you get past your own hesitations to find the integrity residing inside your work. Sometimes it is about finding the most compelling angle to tell your story, or, surprisingly, leaving something out. Exercises will help you to learn to trust the reader, trust yourself, and let the truth speak for itself and propel your work forward. Not unlike a gifted karate master, success lies in channeling the energy of reality, not in necessarily being stronger than an opponent. The writer who can masterfully channel the energy of the truth can and will have a lasting impact on any reader.

Getting Your Work Published with Joe Milazzo
 
Saturday, July 19,  
12:30 - 4:30 PM
One-Day Intensive 

The Writer's Garret

10809 Garland Rd., Dallas, TX 75218

  

In this 4-hour intensive workshop, editor and published writer Joe Milazzo will lead participating writers through the entire process of submitting stories, poems, and essays for publication, from identifying markets to formatting manuscripts to knowing what to expect (and when) from editors. In the process, this class will also provide opportunities to discuss the pros and cons of both print and online publication, research tools for evaluating markets, demonstrate proper etiquette and sharp communication skills, share tips and tricks for tracking multiple submissions, and manage both acceptance and rejection. All in all, we will work together to demystify the business of publication and to remove those feelings of inadequacy, intimidation, and discouragement that stand in the way of getting what you want out of making your work available to a wider readership.

$65 Members / $95 Others
Members save $15 if registered by Early Bird Deadline of July 9
