Center For Fiction, Making a Person (A One Day Bootcamp), December 9th
Tiphanie will be teaching a class at the Center For Fiction. From their website:
As readers ourselves we often connect most to the people we are reading about. Lovely language, vibrant image, racing plot and rich scene might be beside the point if a reader doesn’t feel connected to the character or characters at the center of it all. And yet, as writers we often take short cuts in order to make our characters—using them as plot devices, as delivers of language, as secondary to our clever image, as beside the point. In this intensive craft class for fiction writers in need of generating new material or in need of revision tools for work in progress, we will look at how to create real human beings on the page. We will study the ways that novelists, story writers and narrative poets beautifully and authoritatively create character. We will make human beings with care so that they will be complex actors as they move through language, image, plot and scene.

Key West Literary Seminar: Writers of the Caribbean, January 11th-14th
Tiphanie will be speaking at the Key West Literary Seminar. From their website:
The island nations of the Caribbean have produced some of the most powerful and exciting writers of our time. For the 36th annual Key West Literary Seminar, we look across the waves to the vital literature that has emerged from this region. In bringing these writers together in Key West, we seek to both celebrate and transcend geography, in pursuit of the stories that hold us together.
