Steve Almond

“How to Create an Irresistible Narrator”

Taught by: Steve Almond

When: September 22, 2021, 5-7 p.m. PDT (8-10 p.m. Eastern)

Where: Online via zoom

All Levels

Description: Many a short story, essay, novel, and memoir have gone unpublished because the author fails to create a strong narrator, one who can act as a wise and entertaining guide to the reader. In this class, we’ll examine the work of Sylvia Plath, Jane Austen, Alicia Erian, Joan Didion, and others in an effort to make sure your next narrator isn’t just strong, but irresistible. We’ll also try an in-class exercise to bring the lesson home. 

Cost: A donation of $75 or more to the GoFundMe campaign of the amazing Laurel Leigh to help cover illness-associated expenses. Make sure to add the words “Steve Almond” as a comment.
