International Write-a-Novel Month 2017 Writing Workshops
Sunday November 5, 12, 19, and December 3, 2017 * 14:00 – 17:00
Location: The Munich Readery, Augustenstraße 104, 80798 München
Join creative writing instructor Rita Banerjee for International Write a Novel Month 2017! The Munich Readery will host workshops for writers who are developing or working to complete a book-length manuscript. For our first workshop, writers are encouraged to bring in project proposals. Ideas for a book-length manuscript will be reviewed in class. We will also review texts that blur the line between fact and fiction and that can serve as a launching pad for building longer narratives. During subsequent workshop sessions, writers will work and receive feedback on their manuscripts. Light readings on writing craft and narrative structure will also be provided. Participation in all four workshops is recommended, but not required.
Workshop Fee: €35 for each Sunday
