At Bronx Loaf, we believe in there is tremendous personal benefit to sharing your writing. This happens in several ways. First, you share your writing with a group of like-minded peers from around the city in a workshop led by a professional author. Secondly, you will share your work with a professional author in one-on-one conferences. Sharing is when the magic happens. We offer four workshops. Poetry, Realistic Narrative, Fantasy Fiction, and Visual Storytelling. Scroll down to read descriptions of each of them.
Poetry Poetry can change the way you and your readers think of the world and its inhabitants; it can break new ground for language; turn a blank sheet of paper into a teeming concert of voices and music.
Realistic Narrative: We tell stories to live. Our stories are the foundation of our lives. Whether those stories are fact or fiction doesn’t matter as long as they communicate our truth. This workshop provide writers of realistic fiction and personal narrative with instruction and critiques to improve writing and storytelling skills.
Fantasy Fiction: Science Fiction and Fantasy may transport readers to a planet light-years away or deep inside the caves of a far-distant past. This workshop will help you splice together the skills of a fiction writer with the ability to make the imaginary seem true.
Visual Storytelling. Whether through comics, graphic novels, illustrated poetry or short stories, the mixing of words and pictures creates a unique and powerful new language. Drawing skills aren’t required for this exploration in how to grab a reader’s attention and connect with them through creative choices and dynamic images.
