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,…
