Free Writing Class: Creating Believable Characters @ Queens Library at Flushing
Apr 6 @ 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm
Free Writing Class: Creating Believable Characters @ Queens Library at Flushing | New York | United States

Attention Queens writers—both experienced and new-to-writing: free creative writing classes taught by the best in Queens!

Newtown Literary Alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting prose and poetry in Queens, in partnership with Queens Library, is offering free creative writing classes.

The next class will be led by Nana Ekua Brew-Hammond on Saturday, April 6th from 2:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. at Queens Library in Flushing at 41-17 Main St:

“Creating Believable Characters”

What makes some literary characters more real and more memorable than others? In this class, we will review some of literature’s most compelling characters, and begin to write our own. We’ll examine characters from Janet Fitch’s White Oleander and Zadie Smith’s White Teeth for inspiration, and craft characters, breathing life into them with a series of written exercises. Participants will have the opportunity to share their writing for on-the-spot feedback.

Nana Ekua Brew-Hammond is the author of Powder Necklace, which Publishers Weekly called “a winning debut.” Named among 39 of the most promising African writers under 39, her short fiction was included in the anthology Africa39: New Writing from Africa South of the Sahara. Her work has also appeared in Everyday People: The Color of Life—a Short Story Anthology, African Writing, Los Angeles Review of Books, Sunday Salon, and the short story collection Woman’s Work. Every month, Brew-Hammond co-leads a writing fellowship at Manhattan’s Center for Faith and Work.

This program is made possible, in part, with funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, as well as with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
