WRITING YOUR WORST FIRST DRAFT
Are you being held back by a voice that tries to tell you not to start until you have the perfect first sentence, know the end of your story, or fully understand the motives of your characters? This workshop will springboard you into your story with a series of writing exercises designed to pull out the bare bones of your narrative and bring your characters to life.

Maureen Brady is the author of the novels Ginger's Fire , Folly, and Give Me Your Good Ear, the short stories, The Question She Put to Herself, and three books of nonfiction. Recent short stories "Billy's Mark" appeared in the Bellevue Literary Review; "Five 'n Dime" in the anthology, Just Like a Girl: A Manifesta; and "Joy Suit," in Sinister Wisdom (nominated for a 2012 Pushcart Prize). Other work has appeared in Cabbage and Bones: Irish American Women's Fiction, Mom, In the Family and Intersections: An Anthology of Banff Writers, as well as many other anthologies and literary journals. She teaches creative writing at New York University, New York Writers Workshop, The Peripatetic Writing Workshops in Guatemala and Anna Maria Island, Florida, and Il Chiostro in Italy. She currently serves as Board President of The Money for Women: Barbara Deming Memorial Fund and was a co-founder of Spinsters Ink and New York Writers Workshop. She lives in New York City and the Catskills and her latest novel, Getaway, is available for submission by her agent.
