Summary*NEW DATE* This program has been moved to Oct. 15.
Join Karen Finneyfrock to practice crafting sentences that reveal character and advance action.
DescriptionKurt Vonnegut said, "Every sentence must do one of two things—reveal character or advance the action." In this workshop, we will look at sentences from a selection of novels and decide how many things they are able to do. Come prepared to write.

Karen Finneyfrock is a poet and young adult novelist. She has been a teacher and Writer-in-Residence at Hugo House, teaches for Seattle Arts and Lectures’ Writers in the Schools program, and was the curator for the 2016 Jack Straw Writers Program.
Class NotesLibrary 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.

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

The Seattle Writes series is made possible with the generous support of The Seattle Public Library Foundation and the Amazon Literary Partnership. Find more Seattle Writes programs and resources here.
