This introductory Writers Studio workshop introduces fiction writers and poets to the philosophy on which The Writers Studio was founded in 1987 by Pulitzer Prize winning poet, Philip Schultz. Persona writing, a method of borrowing the voice and temperament of accomplished writers, offers writers the imaginative distance and perspective they need to overcome their negative inclinations, their fear of self-exposure and endless doubt. This method also helps writers try on different voices, or personas, to develop narrative and lyric voices to be used as a tool for unlocking one's most intimate and private stories and turning even their most difficult subject matter into inspiration for writing fiction, poetry, and creative non-fiction.
Weekly exercises based on short pieces of published work are turned into assignments designed to introduce students to various literary styles and approaches and broaden their sense of what is possible in their own work. As the student’s understanding of technique deepens so does the clarity and emotional power of the writing.
Students who miss in-person classes due to a Covid infection are welcomed to rejoin the class after testing negative for Covid or five days after they have no symptoms. In-person classes are not recorded, so there will be no recording provided should a student miss class for any reason. Should the teacher test positive for Covid, class will either meet via Google Meet or a substitute teacher will be provided.
