The month long Paris Writing Workshop is accepting applications now for their summer workshops. There will be a number of courses this year from literary fiction, to Screenwriting, to Creative Non-fiction aiming to make you a better overall writer in your desired field.
Rolf Potts, author of Vagabonding and numerous articles and columns for a many travel oriented publications, will lead the Creative Non-fiction workshop. Travel writing will be a major focus as â€œa month in Paris will provides such a vivid travel immersion experience,â€ as he puts it. The class primarily aims to sharpen and evolve writers’ instincts for constructing narratives, it will also touch on the practical matters of working with agents and editors, and submitting stories for publication. Potts will give one-on-one guidance for each student’s work, and final portfolios will include one polished nonfiction story to be submitted for publication. Every year many of the students go to publish their work in major newspapers and magazines. The course can be used for college credit at many North American Universities as well.
