Story Magic: Fiction Writing Through a Jewish Lens, Part 2

March 30, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until March 30, 2023


March 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, 2023
12:00–1:30 p.m. EST

From biblical and midrashic narratives to contemporary fiction published in literary journals, good stories ignite our imaginations and serve as portals to the human experience. In this generative workshop, we’ll explore the craft of fiction through reading and writing as we unfold the wings of imaginative prose. Each week we’ll discuss a short story, assimilate craft techniques, and write from prompts. This workshop is suitable for poets, journalists, fiction writers, and curious readers. While this immersion is a continuation of the fall series, new participants are encouraged to join.

Amy Gottlieb‘s debut novel The Beautiful Possible was a finalist for the 2017 Harold U. Ribalow Prize, a 2016 National Jewish Book Award and Edward Lewis Wallant Award. Her fiction and poetry have been published in Other Voices, Lilith, Puerto del Sol, Ilanot Review, On Being, Zeek, Storyscape, The Bloomsbury Anthology of Contemporary Jewish American Poetry, and elsewhere. She has received a Literary Fellowship and Residency from the Bronx Council on the Arts, and an Arts Fellowship from the Drisha Institute for Jewish Education. Amy is a graduate of Clark University and the University of Chicago. She lives with her family on the edge of the Hudson River in New York City.

All sessions will be recorded and sent to participants. We encourage live attendance for you to get the most out of the experience.
