An update to announce that author and teacher extraordinaire, Steve Almond, has generously offered to give a 2-hour virtual class on Creating An Irresistible Narrator, with all proceeds going towards Dogpatch co-founder Laurel Leigh’s medical bills. YAY!!! In this class, Steve will upend what you thought you knew about narrators and make you reconsider how you go about creating characters that drive your story. Both Laurel and Sabine Sloley (another one of our organizers), have benefited from previous classes taught by Steve. He’s been teaching writers for years, including workshops for Seattle’s Hugo House and Portland’s Tin House Summer Writer’s Workshop. He is a gifted teacher who enjoys coloring outside the lines.
Instructions on how to donate and register for the class are on the GoFundMe page set up by some of Laurel’s friends.
Class date/time: Wednesday, September 22, 5-7pm PDT (8-10 pm EDT)
I’ve registered, and am looking forward to seeing you all there!
Let’s raise a glass to Laurel’s health!
