Title: Things You Won't Learn from Your English Teacher

Description: This workshop focuses on getting self-consciousness (as well as all adverbs and 50 percent of adjectives) out of your writing, character and story arc, choosing what to write about and some ways to get the things you see in the real world into your imagination through the keyboard and onto the manuscript of fiction (not to be confused with the fictional manuscript which, by it's very definition, doesn't exist).

Deborah Wiles Workshop

Title: Find Your Voice, Claim Your Story

Description: All writing begins with personal narrative. We teach personal narrative writing to our students and ask them to satisfy and master all sorts of standards, across the curriculum. But ultimately, story grows out of our courage to write from the inside out, to touch the truth of our lives, the depths of our hearts, and the craziness of our souls. This is how we find our voices and help our students find theirs. Bring your notebook, your sense of humor, and a great willingness!
