Your Truth in Fiction 

Date - Sunday Nov 2 10 a.m to 3 p.m

Venue -  Dorland Mountain Arts Colony, Temecula

Cost - $90

In this one day workshop we’ll l explore the alchemical process of taking the  ‘stuff’ of one’s life and weaving it into fiction.   We all have truths we’ve discovered, some of them deeply personal and private. The art of fashioning them into stories offers skittish writers a veil, a way of telling the truth with a twist.   How far does one go with the art of “making it up?” Through exercises you’ll  play with gender, with age, with setting - all the while exploring the emotional dynamic at the heart of the story you want to tell.  This workshop is open to writers of all levels of experience and will be limited to 12 participants. 

Here’s a quote from  Virginia Woolf to whet your appetite for your foray into fiction. 

Fiction is like a spider’s web, attached ever so lightly perhaps,but still attached to life at all four corners.
