Due to popular demand, a new session of this course has been created.

How to make a good story even better?  Raise the stakes.  Involve your reader and s/he will gladly turn your pages.  Establish the stakes early enough and even publishers (yes, publishers) will be forced to read on.  In this workshop - a third session due to high demand! - you will learn various ways to get, then keep the reader engaged. 

There will be no in-class writing exercises, no assignments; consequently it is NOT for beginners.  Bring your works in progress--Fiction and Non-Fiction--and receive concrete and savvy feedback from long-time member, writer, and volunteer instructor, Bob Levy.

Instructor: Bob Levy, a winner of this year's Paris Writers' Competition, has been writing Short Fiction and Literary Memoirs for 21 years.  His work - appearing in literary journals, the Chicago Tribune, the San Francisco Bay Guardian - has been awarded the 'Nelson Algren' and 'Langston Hughes' Awards, as well as a Pushcart Prize nomination
