aaww presents do the write thing: a fiction writing workshop with ed lin, july 10 - august 14

Do you have an irrepressible desire to write? If you're in New York, The Asian American Writers' Workshop invites you to enroll in Do the Write Thing: A Fiction Writing Workshop with Ed Lin.

That's right! The Ed Lin. Novelist and friend to this blog. He will teach you amazing things about writing. Or at least, some passably useful bits. Enroll now -- the six-week workshop begins this Sunday, July 10. Here are some more details:
Do the Write Thing: A Fiction Writing Workshop with Ed Lin
Six Sundays from July 10 to August 14, 12-2PM

It's easy to bat around issues about character, plot, point of view, description, dialogue, setting, pacing, voice and theme (whew!) in terms of writing. But Ed Lin promises to spend as little time as possible talking about those concepts. Lin supports the idea that writing is akin to playing a musical instrument that no one else has ever seen or heard before, and that authors are generally right - even when they aren't sure of what they are doing.

The class requirements are:
1) an irrepressible desire to write and
2) ten pages of new fiction to be workshopped - due before the first class.
