The Craft of Fanfare
You’ve learned the craft of creative writing and likely learned to despise your book in the process: now what? In this workshop, we’ll approach our work from the perspective of a fan, honing in on the themes, details, and easter eggs we love most, in order to get a sense of genre, audience, and our book’s market value. Learn to love your work again, and you’ll be in a better position to pitch it.
