Something Like Sherlock: A Fiction Workshop
Our characters will do anything in their power to hide who they really are from us. The result? Everything from writers block to uninspired writing. Demetria Martinez will show us how to be detectives and coax our characters into revealing their true nature. We will experiment with different methods of accomplishing this. Bring pen and paper and be ready to write and have a good time.
Demetria Martinez is the author of two books of poetry, a collection of essays, and a children's book co-authored with Rosalee Montoya. She has also written two prize-winning novels. The widely translated Mother Tongue won a Western States Book Award for fiction. Her most recent novel, The Block Captain's Daughter, won an International Latino Book Award for fiction, and an American Book Award. She works in Albuquerque and Santa Fe as a writing coach.
