Fiction Writing Class in Los Angeles

By posted at 4:28 am on August 24, 2006 2

I’ve got a great opportunity for any aspiring writers in Los Angeles. My good friend Edan Lepucki, an excellent writer and teacher (see her bio below) has decided to start her own fiction writing course. Edan and I met when we worked together at Book Soup in Los Angeles. While there we both led a book club, and her teaching chops were evident from the very start. Our book club members all became big Edan fans. Anyway, if you’re interested, email Edan. This is definitely a worthwhile opportunity. Here are the details:

Class Description and Information:

This fiction writing course is open to anyone who adores, fears, and/or is challenged by the English language and narrative craft. Each week, we will meet at my apartment in Los Feliz to hone our skills as storytellers, discussing published work as well as the work of our peers. There will be in-class and out-of-class writing exercises, each one designed to tackle a different element of craft, including but not limited to: characterization, point of view, scene, setting, and voice. Light refreshments will be served.

Instructor Bio:

Edan Lepucki is a recent graduate of the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop, where she won the Richard Yates Short Story Contest and taught classes in both literature and creative writing. Her work has been published by, or is forthcoming from, Meridian, Filthy, and West, the Los Angeles Times’ Sunday magazine. Last summer she was a fiction fellow at the Vermont Studio Center. She likes Paris, dogs, and filling out forms.

If interested, please email Edan at [email protected]

    Edan is a great writer, and a caring, imaginative, and considerate teacher. I think taking her class would be a great learning experience and lots of fun.

    I can only confirm what Doug has said. I've experienced Edan as an instructor in a creative writing course at GWW (Gotham Writers Workshop). She's spot-on. I'd recommend her as an instructor to anyone.

    I've also read a sampling of her work on-line. ( — Good stuff.
