There are a cluster of events in the U.P. in late May/early June, another cluster near Traverse City in June, and one more Michigan event at local libraries in September.

 

The author is really looking forward to all of these – The Marsh King’s Daughter is being read all over the world (!!!), but Michigan readers connect with the story on a deeper level because they bring their own experiences and love of the state to the book.

Master Class with Lev Raphael presented by Rochester Writers June 8 via @rochwriters

Hello Writers!

Last chance to Register for Lev Raphael’s Master Class on June 8 – held at Oakland University – presented by Rochester Writers. Contest open and local author appearances.

Master Class with Lev Raphael Event Flier
Register NOW to attend Lev Raphael’s Master Class on June 8, Let’s make your writing come alive! The class runs from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. and includes coffee, refreshments, and snacks. Cost is $95. Deadline to register is June 4.

Do you wonder if your writing needs to be more dynamic? Focusing on four basic elements – scene building, dialogue, characterization, and setting – will help you make your writing more vivid and engaging.

Understanding how these elements work together will help you capture your reader and evoke greater emotional resonance in your work, whether you’re writing fiction, memoir, or essays.

Divided into four units, this master class will be built around presentations, discussion, and analysis of varied, short readings drawn from diverse, masterful authors. The class will also give you the opportunity to write on site.

Here’s what attendees said about the May 11 workshop:

“I was interested in dialogue and character development specifically and am very satisfied with the class.”

“I enjoyed the small class size that allowed for a lot of interaction. Also the writing exercise where everyone shared what they wrote so you can see how the same set of criteria is viewed differently by others.”

Lev Raphael is the Prize-Winning Author of 26 Books in a Wide Variety of Genres.

Did you attend the May 11 Master Class? The readings, exercises, and on-site writing prompt will all be different to benefit both the first time or return attendee. Everyone’s welcome to attend June 8 to deepen their writing of scene, dialog, character, and setting.
