Fiction Writers' Workshop Readings

On Monday, May 4, at 7 pm, the Cloverdale Arts Alliance is pleased to present a reading by the students from the inaugural Fiction Writer’s Workshop, taught by Roy Parvin.

Please join us as each workshop student reads a short excerpt from work completed during the course of the class. The reading is offered free of charge and there will be a wine and cheese reception following, which will be held at the Cloverdale Arts Alliance, located at 204 N. Cloverdale Blvd.

Readers include Linda Bennett, Laura Paine Carr, Bill Hillar, Carol Keig, and Janet Vail.

The Fiction Writer’s Workshop is a new program, which the Cloverdale Arts Alliance hopes to make a regular offering. The workshop is modeled on the famed Iowa Writer’s Workshop, and during the course of the class, each student presented work for critique by the other students. Various aspects of craft were discussed, including plot, voice, description, character development, and dialogue. This reading is the culmination of the students’ work during the class; come help celebrate their accomplishments.

The Fiction Writers’ Workshop is a program of the Cloverdale Arts Alliance, a non-profit arts organization bringing cultural arts to Northern Sonoma County. Other CAA programs include Friday Night Live at the Plaza, Art Gallery, Sculpture Trail, THE Jazz Club, Americana Night, Art Classes, Music Workshops, Discovering Art Series, Ceramics Classes, Wine Appreciation Workshops, and Special Events.
