Tema: Escritura biográfica: el sutil arte de desnudar vidas, propias y ajenas. María Teresa Romero (1955) escritora venezolana con Licenciatura en Comunicación Social (Universidad Central de Venezuela,…

Love Notes: The Craft of Writing Romance with Nadine Gonzalez

Thursdays, February 21 – March 14 (4 weeks) 7 – 9 p.m. | MDC Wolfson Campus, Downtown Miami A well-crafted romantic sub-plot can add dimension to any genre. A love interest can raise the stakes in a thriller, round out the character of a fantasy trilogy hero/heroine, or serve as the ultimate blind spot for an antihero. With that in mind, it’s worth it to master the romantic arc. In this workshop, we’ll work through the mandatory beats in romance (meet cute,…

The Wildness and Carefulness of Writing a Novel with Moriel Rothman-Zecher

3-Day Workshop Wednesday – Friday, May 8 – 10 | 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. In order to create a new universe — i.e., a novel — a writer needs a sense of recklessness, boldness, imagination, and wildness. But in order to tame this universe, to sharpen its logics, and to make enough sense out of its rhythms to tell a compelling story, a writer needs discipline, methodology, grit, and carefulness. In this workshop, we will explore the contradictory and complementary ideas of wildness and carefulness in novel writing,…

We will examine memory as a vital tool for character development, and we will look at the ways that memory can influence nearly every other element of a work of fiction.…
