Learning to Lie: A Fiction Writing Workshop

Specific concrete particulars are the stuff of persuasiveness, the lifeblood of fiction. In this workshop we will deal with inept pieces of fiction writing, revise them to avoid cliches and to dramatize rather than summarize. There are no "right" ways to create stellar writing except through important details. Come and participate in creating these details that matter and make for a good story.

Gail Hosking is the author of the memoir Snake's Daughter: the Roads in and out of War and the poetry chapbook The Tug. Her work has been anthologized several times. She holds an MFA from Bennington College and taught for many years at RIT. Her poems and essays have been published in such places as Lilith Magazine, Nimrod, The Chattahoochee Review, Tar River Poetry and The Fourth Genre. Two recent essays were considered "most notable" in Best American Essays 2014 and 2015.
