Wednesday, February 12 - Colette Sartor
6:30-8:30 pm 

Designed for writers of all levels and genres, this workshop will help participants generate new writing in a relaxed, collaborative environment. Colette will talk about basic writing craft principles, focusing on how to create richly imagined characters and challenge them with conflicts that threaten their hidden, most deeply held desires. Participants will write in response to writing prompts designed to propel characters into action, then share their work aloud and receive feedback from the class.

Colette Sartor’s debut short story collection, Once Removed (UGA Press), won the Flannery O’Connor Award for Short Fiction. She is executive director of the CineStory Foundation, a mentoring organization for emerging TV writers and screenwriters, and teaches at the UCLA Extension Writers Program as well as privately. Her writing has appeared in Carve Magazine, Slice Magazine, the Chicago Tribune, Kenyon Review Online, Colorado Review, among others.
