"The Writer as Bandit” with First Draft and Miami Book Fair
Every artist is a thief. And any essay is an invitation to scavenge a writer’s craft for techniques you can apply to your own work. This workshop will help you learn to look at everything you read as a writing prompt. By practicing thoughtful emulation, you will learn to look for the invitations a writer is giving you to borrow from him or her. We will explore a few short powerful essays, emulate techniques that speak to you in a few writing exercises, and you will leave with the start of a potentially powerful essay of your own.
