WAIT! Can it be? A fourth_class in the wildly popular series of Grub Street classes that combine the best of literary fiction techniques with the punch of genre storytelling? Yes, IT IS! In this newest instalment of the "Smart Page-Turner" sequence, you will receive serious hands-on instruction from a multi-award-winning novelist and nationally syndicated critic that will not only infuse your genre fiction with literary gravitas, but that will also infuse your literary fiction with the readability and popular appeal of fiction genres such as thrillers, mysteries, Science Fiction and Fantasy, erotica, adventure, etc. Classes will include writing exercises and workshopping of students' fiction. Specific topics will include, but not be limited to: Creating Suspense; Using All Five Senses in Your Fiction; How to Steal the Storytelling Techniques of Writers for Stage, Screen and TV, and Repurposing the Techniques Actors Use to Create Characters for Your Fiction. This class expands on topics covered in Grub's "Writing the Smart-Page Turner", "The Smart Page-Turner Strikes Back!" and "Revenge of the Smart Page-Turner", but is open to all. Recommended for those with previous workshop experience.
