Help! How Do I Fix This?

Bring a few pages or a few paragraphs of your work to this class, and Stephanie Hammer will help make what you've got better. You'll learn what steps you can take -- some tiny and some radical -- to make your poem, fiction, or non-fiction more publishable. For example: ■ Is your opening paragraph not grabbing the reader? ■ Is the conversation dragging in a key piece of dialog? ■ Are your characters' names too hard to remember, too similar to each other, or too cliche? You'll leave this class with ideas that will help you continue to improve your work. Stephanie Barbé Hammer, PhD, is a four-time Pushcart Prize nominee who writes long and short fiction with a magical realist slant. Originally a poet, she dabbles in the non-fiction essay, and her novel, The Puppet Turners of Narrow Interior, was recently published by Urban Farmhouse Press. Category: Classes & Lectures.
