Creative Writing Workshop with Jerry DiPego

  • St. Mark's in the Valley Episcopal Church (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

This program is presented by Arts Outreach, and wine and snacks will be served as I build this evening of instruction around samples and exercises from my new how-to book called “WRITE!”

“WRITE” distills 45 years of my working and learning in creative writing for film, novels, stories and plays – and this seminar is a preview of the book, where I will cover some of the highlights, and breakthroughs in storytelling, character creation, research, language, all packaged in my own method of emotional realism – a way of bringing truth to our fiction. I will also make sure all your questions about the craft are answered and share some helpful tips and anecdotes. Let’s have fun with this!
