Workshop: Writing Fiction, Non-fiction, and Beyond with Andi Teran

March 19, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

There is a story in each one of us. Whether you’ve thought about writing a novel, pitching articles to major magazines, or are interested in taking your writing hobby to the next level, acclaimed novelist, journalist, and performer Andi Teran will inspire you with her own story. A self-taught writer, Andi spent over a decade working as a journalist for the likes of Vanity Fair, Vogue, and Monocle, and earlier this year, her novel, Ana of California—a modernization of Anne of Green Gables—was published by Penguin.

The workshop will begin with a group writing exercise. Andi will discuss her path to becoming a published author and will cover writing for the web, print, and fiction publication. There will also be exercises centered around curiosity, listening, and feeling—all hallmarks of developing a serious writing process. Whether you’ve had formal training or none at all, anyone and everyone who is interested in writing is welcome.

Saturday, March 19, 2016, 2pm-5pm
