Catherine Ryan Hyde offers fiction workshop
July 21, 2010
Cambria novelist Catherine Ryan Hyde, who knows a thing or two about writing novels that sell (“Pay It Forward,” “Love in the Present Tense,” “Electric God”), is hosting a writing workshop in August that is a fundraiser for LandWatch San Luis Obispo County.
The two-day workshop, scheduled for August 28-29 in Cambria, is being offered by Hyde, who recently became president of Landwatch. Hyde describes the upcoming workshop as “an in-depth read-and-critique workshop for beginning and intermediate writers.”
“It’s really designed for people a bit newer to writing,” Hyde explained. “But it might be an advantage to a more experienced author if they are having trouble in the critique group experience.”
The workshop runs Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with a one-hour lunch break. Scheduled topics include story arc, characterization, self-editing, dialogue, great beginnings, and great voice.
Cost is $150 and Hyde said every dime goes directly to LandWatch. “It’s a fundraiser and I’m not making a cent off it.”
