On Saturday April 28, The Jack Kerouac Writers-in-Residence Project of Orlando partners with MAD about Words to offer you the opportunity to learn from and write with Leslie Parry, the current writer-in-residence at Kerouac House.
How to Get Started
One of the biggest struggles when it comes to writing is simply getting started. What should I write about? Where does the story begin? Whose point-of-view do I choose? How do I even find the time to write, anyway? We’ll talk about the choices you face, both technical and imaginative, when you sit down to write, as well as the challenges of finding the right form for your project. There will be several short creative exercises to help get you started.
Leslie Parry is a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, where she was a Truman Capote Fellow in fiction. Her stories have appeared in The Virginia Quarterly Review, Indiana Review, Cream City Review, and The PEN/O. Henry Prize Stories, and have been nominated for a National Magazine Award and a Pushcart Prize.
