Ellen Sussman—Creativity and Writing: Taking Risks, Bending Rules

You’ve stalled out on your writing. Or perhaps everything you’ve written feels like a retelling of the same story. Maybe you’re tired of your literary voice. How do you find the kind of creative energy that will take your writing in a new direction? Guided by New York Times bestselling novelist Ellen Sussman (French Lessons), in this three-hour seminar the focus will be on pushing your writing in new directions. A stronger voice? Braver characters? More exciting drama? It may be time to break the rules in your writing. We'll grapple with structure, character, style, and plot. We'll blast through the boundaries of how we usually do things and explore new paths.
