Fiction Workshop: Pushing the Boundaries of the Imagination with JR Helton

Gemini Ink, 1111 Navarro St

+ Google Map
$150.00

In this 6-week fiction workshop, learn to be creative and far-reaching in your choice of topics by considering new sources for your stories and by pushing the boundaries of your imagination. Explore any category of fiction and celebrate not censoring yourself in the least as you delve deep into the play and process of fiction writing. One can still "write what you know" as the old maxim goes, but also, one can “write towards what you do not yet know,” which can be even more thrilling for one's self and one’s readers. Students will write, workshop, revise, and draft works of fiction with the goal of creating a completed short story or the beginnings of a novel by the end of the course.

Facilitated by William Glenn & Eusebio Diaz

The glare of the 1980s changed the noir landscape. A new breed of noir, called neo-noir, went in new directions, incorporating diverse voices and perspectives. These hardboiled authors investigated more than just murder, but interrogated the shadowy social landscapes behind the crime scene itself. The settings expanded from Big City USA to suburban shopping malls and beyond. Join as we explore the classics of Neo-Noir.

LA Confidential is a crime novel of astonishing detail and scope written by the bestselling author of The Black Dahlia. A horrific mass murder invades the lives of victims and victimizers on both sides of the law. And three lawmen are caught in a deadly spiral, a nightmare that tests loyalty and courage, and offers no mercy, grants no survivors.
