Are you an aspiring writer who is just getting started? A practicing writer who wants to recharge your creative battery? Need to trim the fat…from your stories? Join Myla Goldberg as she leads a 4-week class that will create a supportive environment for brainstorming and new writing. Don’t worry, Creative Bootcamp: Craft & Practice won’t involve any rigorous dieting! In fact, one of Myla’s favorite writing tools includes a sweet treat…
Favorite Writing Tools: Salted dark chocolate covered almonds
I’m currently reading: A Wrinkle in Time (with my 9-year-old daughter), Delicate, Edible Birds by Lauren Groff (with my mouth agape at how well she writes short stories)
If I could be a fictional character for a day, I’d choose: Moby Dick! I’d get to stay under water for 90 minutes at a time, bite off a sea captain’s leg, and destroy several whaling ships.
You should take my class because: What’s neat about Creative Bootcamp is that it draws writers from varying experience levels, with writing exercises and craft discussions that work for beginners as well as more advanced practitioners.
Why I love The Center for Fiction: The elevator. Every time I ride up in it, I read something on its walls that makes me smile.
