There are many great workshops to choose from this summer and it is difficult to know which one is right for you. One Story understands and would like to invite you to a sampling of our 2012 Workshop for Writers. In addition to daily intimate workshops, and evening panels with publishing professionals, each day of our July 22-27th workshop will include a lecture from a talented and generous author on the craft of writing fiction. On Thursday, May 17th at 6:30 pm at One Story’s home base, the Old American Can Factory, (232 Third Street btw. 3rd & 4th ave. in Brooklyn) Editor-in-Chief Hannah Tinti will lecture on character, using the model of comic book super heroes. Please join us to see how understanding the dynamics behind Spider-Man or Superman can help us create our own believable characters in fiction.
Last year Hannah revealed the secrets of revision. Her five draft process is easy to follow and extremely helpful. The writing process can be a journey through the dark but these craft lecturers are full of practical advice that illuminate the path ahead.
The evening will begin with a cocktail reception. Workshop leaders Marie-Helene Bertino and Will Allison will also be there to answer any questions you might have. This event is a great opportunity find out if the One Story summer workshop is right for you and a chance to meet our staff (in super hero garb). See you there!
