Nothing can be written overnight. Not really. So what will it take for you to stay with a story from its beginning, middle, and to its very, very end? Min Jin Lee, author of novel Free Food for Millionaires and Pachinko, will raise the necessary questions that may matter to each author and help compel the author to stay the course from the first draft to last revision. Exercises that prompt the writer to consider personal experiences with race and immigration will comprise the first half of the class, and we will workshop the exercises in the second half.
