Seattle Writes: Conflict – The Machine of Fiction @ Delridge Library
Oct 2 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

At the Delridge Library Sunday, October 2, 2016, 2–4 pm:

Learn techniques to create and maintain conflict in your novel with author Karen Finneyfrock.

Stories are their conflicts. In this workshop for writers working on a novel, we will use readings, discussion, and writing exercises to explore the inherent conflicts that make up the world of our stories: conflict with nature, society, law, and conflict between people. Come prepared to write.

Karen Finneyfrock is the author of two young adult novels and two collections of poetry. She has been a teacher and Writer in Residence at Hugo House, teaches for Seattle Arts and Lectures’ Writers in the Schools program, and is the curator for the 2016 Jack Straw Writers Program

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required for this writing class, but seating is limited. Seating will be on a first come, first seated basis. Doors to the meeting room will open 30 minutes prior to the start of the class. We’ll try our best to make room for all interested writers, but students may be turned away if the room is filled to capacity. Due to the fire code, we cannot exceed the maximum capacity for our rooms.

Please bring a pen/pencil and paper or fully-charged laptop to each class.

Accommodation requests may be made with seven days advanced notice to leap@spl.org or (206) 615-1380 (v/tty).

Seattle Writes supports local writers through programs, workshops, write-ins, and by providing spaces to work throughout the city.

Space is limited at library events. Please come early to make sure you get a seat. Due to the fire code, we can’t exceed the maximum capacity for our rooms.
