Using techniques of television series head writers or show runners who must create entire worlds from top to bottom under strict ($$$) deadline pressure, this course will teach you how to organize it all, how to know what to keep and what to toss, and how to keep your inspiration level high throughout the long-form story process.
Anjanette Delgado is an award-winning novelist, speaker, and journalist who is fascinated by heartbreak, the different ways in which it occurs, and the consequences it brings. Her first novel, The Heartbreak Pill (Atria Books, 2008) told the story of a modern-day Latina enmeshed in a battle between her brain and her heart. Her latest, The Clairvoyant of Calle Ocho, is set in vibrant Little Havana, and follows Mariela Esteves, a woman whose choice to renounce her true calling results in two failed marriages, a brush with murder, and a lot of heartbreak. Clairvoyant was an Indiefab finalist for Best Multicultural Book of the Year 2014. Both novels have been optioned for film and television. Anjanette has an MFA in Creative Writing from Florida International University, was a contributor to the Bread Loaf Writers Conference in Vermont and will be the 2017 Peter Taylor Fellow at the Kenyon Review Writer’s Workshop this coming summer. In 2015, she served as judge for the Flannery O’Connor Short Fiction Award. She lives in Miami and teaches fiction at Miami Book Fair at Miami Dade College.
