Women Writers of the Triad is thrilled to bring award-winning author Richard Krawiec to Greensboro for his Write Your Life workshop. This workshop has sold out, Fall and Spring, for 8 years straight in Chapel Hill.
A famous writer once said, “Listen to your life; all moments are key moments.” In this supportive writing-intensive class, participants will learn how to draw on the “material” of your life to write and revise memoirs, stories, or plays. Elements covered include time compression and expansion, scene vs. summary, how to find your themes, recognize your purpose, and develop and polish your piece from an initial draft to something worthy of publication. Working individually, in small groups, and one-on-one with the instructor, this class is sure to inspire your creativity.
Krawiec is the author of numerous publications, including two novels (Faith in What? and Time Sharing), a story collection, two adult biographies, four plays and two books of poetry, most recently She Hands Me the Razor. He has won fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the North Carolina Arts Council. In 2009, he was awarded the Excellence in Teaching Award from UNC-Chapel Hill. He is founder of Jacar Press a community active press. Learn more about Richard here.
