This Saturday: Kennedy! Lutz! Workshops! Readings!

Don't forget to sign up for this Saturday's inaugural event of our new series Writing Exercises! The first installment of an intellectually enriching series of creative writing workshops, Writing Exercises will offer participants the opportunity to work closely with two nationally recognized authors and to learn new techniques to enhance and inspire their own poetry and fiction. We are kicking off the series with two powerhouses of poetry and prose, and seasoned writing instructors to boot:  Isabella Gardner Award-winning BOA author and Syracuse University professor Christopher Kennedy and Gary Lutz, author of Stories in the Worst Way and a current visiting writer at Syracuse’s MFA program in Creative Writing. During his hour-long poetry workshop, Kennedy will share and analyze some his favorite poems, using these works as a springboard for creative and generative exercises that will help participants to draft their own work.  Lutz will complement Kennedy’s exercises with an hour-long fiction workshop that will discuss a selection of short stories and emphasize close readings and fine-tuned style: how even a single sentence can become a meaningful mode of self-expression.  Following these workshops, Lutz and Kennedy will treat participants to a reading of their work in an intimate setting. Spaces are filling up quickly, so don't forget to reserve your spot to work closely with these two inimitable, innovative authors. Please call (585) 461-2300 to sign up. Saturday, October 9, 10AM-2PM Midtown Athletic Club 200 East Highland Drive / Rochester, NY Price $75 ($50 for Students)
