A Day for Creative Writing: "Let's Write!" Critique Seminar
Taught by Harvard Alum Novelist Mary Rakow, Ph.D.
Limited to 10 participants
Every participant will receive detailed critique on up to 5 pages of prose work. The atmosphere is safe but also rigorous.
"Many creatures must make, but only one must seek within itself what to make." We are that creature. We alone must
make objects of meaning. Bring what you have to this seminar: a novel excerpt, part of a short story, the opening of a
memoir. Find what you are trying to make. Get started. Go deeper into what you have. See more clearly the finishing
touches you must now do. Take a step toward more powerful, truthful and beautiful work.
