Editor's Note

Control and Abandon in Any Genre with Meredith Talusan
Saturday, February 25th
8 AM – 11 AM PST/ 11 AM – 2 PM EST

Any piece of effective writing must be written with enough abandon so words on the page feel alive, yet with enough control so that the work feels well-considered. This craft seminar will take participants through a series of exercises designed to promote greater spontaneity in their writing, then another set that allows writers to make controlled decisions as they refine their work. The hope is that by intensive’s end, participants will have not only started pieces they’re excited about, but also gained a clearer sense of how they can refine the elements of control and abandon in their writing process.
