2000 Word Club
September 28, 2015 @ EST 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$207
The most useful 2000 words in the English language may be yours. In traditional societies, the elders held a revered place. They were the keepers of the stories, repositories of wisdom passed on to them from the past and derived from their hard-won lifelong experience. They held the key to who we are and how we ought to live. The purpose of the 2000 Word Club is to offer class members an opportunity to explore the various creative writing genera—fiction, memoir, creative essay, experimental forms, and even chapters of larger works—to find the form most amenable to their experience and imagination. The only requirement: manuscripts must be under 2000 words. Class members’ manuscripts are critiqued in a cordial and supportive environment, craft issues are discussed, and suggestions are made to make manuscripts more readable/marketable.
