Story, Structure, Music, and Imagination are what Gregory Orr calls the natural temperaments of writers, and each writer has one of these temperaments that comes easily to us, is nearly instinctive, is the strength we lean into when we write. In this workshop you will discover which of the four temperaments is your particular strength and how to deepen and broaden that talent.
Further, each temperament has its complement, so we will discuss ways to pair your strength, like food with the right wine, you will find ways to develop your complementary temperament.
This is a five-week workshop for writers of all genres who want to have fun, experiment and develop their writing skills. We will create fresh work and workshop our writing in welcoming round table discussions.
This class is presented in partnership with Siegal Lifelong Learning.
