You’ll take home the recipes (truffle recipe included) along with anything leftover, so be sure to bring a container. $10 food fee included. No discounts.

At the end of this workshop you'll have discovered the organizing point(s) of tension that propels your character to move toward what she/he wants. Ideally, you'l be primed to soldier on in your endeavor to tell your story. This workshop will be taught by an MFA with two published novels and one in the making.
