MAY 2017 WRITERS CAMP: Go Big or Go Home: Lessons ...


 Occidental, CA, Unknown


Ellen Sussman and Elizabeth Stark, both acclaimed authors and writing teachers, have put together two wonderful four day events. Held in the gorgeous setting-gardens, pond, meadow and woods-of the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center, just 70 miles from both San Francisco and Oakland, May 3 – 7 (SPACES STILL AVAILABLE) & August 2 – 6 (SOLD OUT), this will be an intimate, inspiring, enormously creative and productive adventure.

May 3 – 7, Go Big or Go Home: Lessons in Conflict

If we are socialized not to “make a scene,” how do we do just that? This camp session will focus on plot decisions, on pushing your characters over the edge, making things happen, getting out of the habit of keeping quiet! Fiction is not life, but a heightened version of life. Same with narrative non-fiction. Get to the heart of your story and let it beat, loud and hard and with great force.
