The Martha’s Vineyard Institute of Creative Writing

I’m excited to announce that I will be an instructor at the Martha’s Vineyard Institute of Creative Writing during the upcoming 2014 session.

Per the website:

The Martha’s Vineyard Institute of Creative Writing was founded in order to give writers the opportunity to develop their craft among established authors. The Institute offers a comprehensive week-long focus on writing, providing writers with the necessary time to devote to their art, in the idyllic setting of the Vineyard. Each summer, the institute invites award-winning authors and poets, literary journal editors, and university creative writing faculty from around the country to lead writing workshops, work one-on-one with individuals, and provide the necessary tips and tools for editing and publishing their work.

This year’s session runs from July 13-18, 2014. I’ll be leading two courses on the fiction track: The first will cover how to extrapolate the “place” from memories to strengthen setting in the writer’s work in order to produce a fuller, richer story. The second will be a general overview of editing and submitting processes for writers.

I’m ecstatic to be working alongside mega-talents Keith Leonard, Wendy Rawlings, Marcus Wicker, and MVICW director Alexander Weinstein. It aims to be a tremendous week.

In addition, there are need- and merit-based scholarships available for potential students. You can find additional information about that here.
