During November, The Munich Readery will host workshops and write-ins for writers developing or working to complete a book-length manuscript. We’ll kick off the month by hosting a workshop with Rita Banerjee on “Life and Lived Stories” and the craft of nonfiction and fiction writing on Saturday, November 7. Writers will bring in their project proposals and ideas for a book-length project to be reviewed in class. We’ll review a text that blurs the line between fact and fiction and can serve as a launching pad for building longer narratives. Beginning writers also welcome. On the next three Saturdays, November 14, 21, and 28, The Munich Readery will host special “write-in” sessions, during which writers will work on their book-length projects. Rita Banerjee will meet individually with writers during these sessions to discuss their projects and progress. Rita will help writers set goals for each write-in, and the sessions will conclude with self-assessments and a question and answer period. Workshop Fee: €30/workshop.
