Ditmas Park’s Fiction Writers Share Their Work


Rachel Sherman’s fiction workshop  is coming to a close at the Lark Cafe on December 11 at 7:30 pm with a public reading. You can stop to hear local writers share their fiction and, if you’re interested in the class, you can get a feel for what is being produced.

Next year’s class will take place on Tuesdays from January 22 to March 26th at $425 for 10 weeks.

Structured around in-class discussions of your work, we will focus on outline, structure, plot, narrative, dialogue, pacing, and content. You will receive written critiques and edits from me as well as your peers. This is an open class for both beginning writers as well as writers who currently have a novel or short story in progress. The class will culminate with an (optional) reading at Lark Cafe.

You can contact to sign up.

If you’re one of the people who took the class, we’d love to hear about your experience in the comment section below.

  1. Happy to share my experience. There’s a reason so many people (myself included) have taken this class multiple times. Rachel is an excellent teacher, and having deadlines and feedback from her and the group has been really motivating. Everyone brings different projects and styles to the table, and Rachel is so talented at understanding what each writer is trying to accomplish and drawing that out.

  2. I’ve found the fiction workshop to be a meaningful and exciting opportunity to work with other writers near and far who are looking for a different kind of classroom structure. Rachel’s approach is personal, story- or project- oriented, and motivating. You’ll read lots of different styles, meet lots of different writers, and work collectively solo in a welcoming space.

  3. I highly recommend the class! It’s been such an inspiration to me and I’ve learned so much. Rachel’s a wonderful, caring, experienced teacher. Plus, you can’t go wrong with a class location that’s so conveniently local AND where you can get delicious things to eat and drink!
