NEW CLASS DATE CHANGE! Back to school. Date TBA. Taught by Enzu Castellanos
As residents of South Florida, we live in a place that drives our stories. Moving through the physical terrain of our lives, we encounter people, places, situations, and things that intrigue, amuse, and even offend or inspire us. In this workshop, writers will use the places they go–whether frequently, or for the first time–to mine stories that bring the location to life for the reader while revealing the thoughts and emotions of the storyteller.
The workshop prompts will challenge writers to build scenes, develop point of view, create themes, chose concrete language, evoke reflection, practice objective and subjective observation, and bring it all together in effective storytelling. Writers will explore and identify not only the environments that they enter, but also the effects of those environments on themselves and others. All writing will be read aloud and workshopped by the group.
Enzu Castellanos is a South Florida native with a background in arts promotion, production, and management. He is currently in the Florida International University Creative Writing MFA program. He teaches writing and rhetoric.
