WestportWRITES Workshop: Drafting

Monday, Oct 16, 2017 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

In preparation for this year’s NaNoWriMo, WestportWRITES offers a workshop on drafting, taught by Patrick McCord from Write Yourself Free.

Patrick McCord, PhD, has developed and teaches a theory of narrative writing---novel, memoir, screenplay and dramatic writing--- based on the insights of cognitive science. The Cognitive Method emphasizes essentials of creative process and explains narrative form as a reflection of actual brain operations; in order to liberate the imagination, the consciousness needs clarity and support. "Use your mind to change your brain to change your mind." This fall, two students are publishing major releases: Alysin Camerota's novel, Amanda Wakes Up is on bookstore shelves. Lynne (aka "Liv") Constantine's thriller, The Last Mrs. Parrish is coming out in October. Also, McCord assisted revision and edited Bill Dedman's fine nonfiction NY Times bestseller Empty Mansions. Register online.

WestportWrites is a robust, year-long series designed to take your writing to the next level. Designed to create a support structure along the path to publication, the monthly mini-conferences and workshop-based programming will culminate with a fall 2018 writers’ conference.
