Nancy Agabian to host a writing workshop this April in Queens; e-version of workshops beginning in June

Nancy Agabian, author of Me as her again: True Stories of an Armenian Daughter, is holding a community-oriented writing workshop for creative nonfiction and autobiographical fiction in Queens, New York.

“Heightening Stories” is a ten-week long workshop from April 10 to June 12 held on Wednesday nights from 6:30pm to 9:30pm. Taking place in a supportive environment in the instructor’s home, the weekly sessions will include discussions of exemplary contemporary fiction and nonfiction, exercises to help you develop material and learn writing techniques, and constructive group feedback sessions. By the end of the ten weeks, you will have completed or revised up to twenty pages of writing (one long piece or a few short essays, stories or chapters) that will be ready to publish.

The workshop is designed for writers of all levels to contribute their unique skills to help each other improve; beginners are welcome.

To apply, please email two paragraphs that 1) explain your interest and/or experience in contributing to a writing community and 2) describe your writing goals and/or the writing you would like to do with this group. Attach a 1-3 page sample of writing.

The cost of the workshop is $300, and the application deadline is April 6th — deadline extended!

Not in Queens but still want to write with this fantastic author? Agabian is planning to start an e-version of “Heightening Stories” in June for individuals residing outside of Queens. Keep an eye on for more information.
