Fiction/Memoir Writing

Winter 2013 Fiction/Memoir Writing

Mondays, January 13-March 17, 2014. 7-9 PM. Ten Weeks. Moncure. $150, or $180 by correspondence to cover postage and copying costs.

Judy Hogan will offer a second fiction or memoir course this winter for writers at every stage of their writing career. We will read as a model Louise Penny’s Still Life. This book, plus best-selling mystery author Elizabeth George’s book, Write Away, will serve as guide for studying fiction techniques: characterization, scenes, plot, setting, dialogue, viewpoint, getting started. The same techniques help write better memoirs.
Hogan herself, author of mysteries Killer Frost and Farm Fresh and Fatal, finds Write Away helpful and believes the best way to learn to write is to read excellent models/books.

Techniques and examples from both books will be discussed each week, and writers may read to the class as well as turn in work to Hogan.


To sign up for the course: Send $20 deposit to Judy Hogan, PO Box 253, Moncure, NC 27559-0253. For more info: 919-545-9932. judyhogan at mindspring.com
