8-Week Fiction Workshop
Designed for writers looking to receive constructive and specific feedback within a supportive and engaged community of their peers, participants range in age from twenty-somethings to sixty-somethings, and represent various experience writing levels and interests, from flash fiction to the novel.
Everyone will present work once, with additional time to discuss published stories from the perspective of craft, a model based on the workshops Myla has led over 10 years of teaching at the MFA programs of Brooklyn College, NYU, and Sarah Lawrence.
The workshop is open to 10 students. Myla is accepting applications (10-15 double-spaced pages of prose, please) through August 28th, on a first-come, first-served basis. This means an application received on August 1st will be prioritized above one of equal caliber received on August 10th.
Myla Goldberg is the bestselling author of Feast Your Eyes, The False Friend, Wickett’s Remedy, and Bee Season, which was a New York Times Notable Book, winner of the Borders New Voices Prize, a finalist for the Hemingway Foundation/PEN award, and adapted to film and widely translated. She has regularly taught at the MFA writing programs of Brooklyn College, NYU and Sarah Lawrence and has been named a 2019 NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellow. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
