“Using Fiction Writing Techniques Across Genres” will be taught by Anne Bloomsburg, a published short fiction author, during a four-session workshop hel on Wednesday evenings, starting March 4, in Ouray.
Bloomsburg’s work has been published in journals such as Orange Willow Review, The Distillery, So To Speak, and A&U Magazine. Her story “In Search of Kurt Loder” was nominated for the Pushcart Prize. Bloomsburg has taught writing at Richard Bland College and John Tyler Community College, and she holds an MFA in creative writing from George Mason University, where she served as editor for one of that program's literary journals. She and her husband spend winters in Ouray and reside otherwise in Richmond, Va., and Kill Devil Hill, N.C.
The Weehawken class will offer writers and artists of any type of creative genre the opportunity to practice and fine-tune traditional fiction-writing techniques and apply them to their own projects in a workshop environment. Aspects and methods of characterization, description and dramatization can be applied across the creative genres, from nonfiction to photography to songwriting. Throughout the four-week session, students will be encouraged to both generate work and have the opportunity to use class time for instructor and peer-review of existing projects.
"Using Fiction Writing Techniques Across Genres" will be held in Ouray on March 4, 11, 18, and 25 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. The cost for this eight-hour workshop is $60 for Weehawken members and $66 for non-members. Those enrolling by or before Feb. 28, the “go date,” will receive an additional discount.
