If you loved Patch's former Sunday Night Supper column, you'll be interested in this.
Laura Zinn Fromm, who used to write Sunday Night Supper, has been teaching fiction and creative non-fiction workshops in New York for five years, and in her Millburn home since spring. Fall classes are now open for registration.
In Manhattan, she teaches a fiction and creative non-fiction class
Every Monday afternoon for six weeks, writers will have the opportunity to share their work, receive written critiques, and discuss assigned readings by such authors as Mary Karr, Anne Lamott, Alice Munro, Philip Roth, Cheryl Strayed, and Vivian Gornick, among others.
Students can submit short stories, portions of novels, essays and/or sections of memoirs.
"Both fiction and creative non-fiction involve strong story lines, memorable characters and lively dialogue," says Zinn Fromm. "We will migrate between the two genres."
Coffee will be served and a friendly yellow dog may sit in. Instructor’s approval required prior to registering. Please email a 3–5 page writing sample to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Zinn Fromm is also the author of the forthcoming My Inner Fruitcake: Tales of Cooking and Coping.
She holds an MFA in fiction writing from Columbia University and teaches fiction and creative non-fiction through the New York Writers Workshop at the JCC Manhattan. She has also taught at Columbia and Montclair State. A former editor at Business Week magazine, she is the winner of the Clarion Award and the Newspaper Guild's Page One Award for Labor Reporting.
