December Writing Workshop with Signe Hammer


3 Sessions: Thursdays, December 7–21 

Share the story only you can write, in memoir, fiction or narrative nonfiction. Whether you are working on a narrative, want to start one, or just want to explore the possibilities, this workshop is dedicated to helping you shape your tale and discover the voice that is uniquely yours.
Learn how to draw the reader in with a strong opening, and keep the excitement going with a compelling narrative arc. To see how it works, we will look at writing by masters like Alice Munro, Joan Didion and John McPhee as well as our own work. Writing exercises will provide the opportunity to try various approaches.
Signe Hammer has taught writing workshops for 40 years, including 12 years as an Adjunct Associate Professor of Creative Writing at New York University, where she received an Award for Teaching Excellence. She has been an editor at both a major book publisher and a national magazine. She has published four nonfiction books, along with short stories, poetry, reviews and many national-magazine feature articles. Her memoir was selected as aNew York Times Book Review Notable Book.
