The Six People You Meet In Creative Writing Workshop Dwayne Fry The room in which we gathered, a basement chamber tucked beneath Carver Hall, was as hot as a jungle but possessed none of the splendor The walls were a soft beige, marred in spots by ink and carbon There were smudges that seemed to have come from dirt and oil people left while leaning against them Above us florescent lights buzzed and blinked The carpet under our chaiThe room in which we gathered, a basement chamber tucked beneath Carver Hall, was as hot as a jungle but possessed none of the splendor The walls were a soft beige, marred in spots by ink and carbon There were smudges that seemed to have come from dirt and oil people left while leaning against them Above us florescent lights buzzed and blinked The carpet under our chairs and feet was various shades of tan with long dark streaks in the places where people commonly walked There were no windows, not even in the heavy steel door, painted prison gray It was in this room, with all the appeal of a gas chamber and all the comfort of a sauna, that we gathered for three hours every Wednesday night of that summer semester, six students and one teacher, reading our tales to one another and discussing the art of writing.

One thought on “The Six People You Meet In Creative Writing Workshop

  1. J. Daniel Layfield

    I meant to only read a section, but wound up devouring the whole thing in one sitting I don t think I ve read something that way in quite a while I ve never been in a creative writing course, but Fry describes what I ve always imagined they must be like He is a natural born story teller, which I believe is something that just can t be taught or learned Thoroughly entertaining, smart, funny, and makes me want to get back to work on my own projects Highly recommended.

  2. Christina McMullen

    I have to admit, the name was enough to grab me with this book Having taken quite a few creative writing courses in the early nineties myself, I recognized most these characters Heck, I probably have in common with them than I d ever admit They re stereotypes, yes, deliberately done to exaggeration, and yet, there s a blatant honesty in each over the top outburst.The writing style is subtle ish.Elaborate description of the mundane, the character study, and the deliberateness of style are exactl [...]

    I haven t met a Dwayne Fry book I didn t likeAnother winner this time a book familiar to anyone who loves writing, and strives to be better at their craft and passion Each character so well drawn and familiar, I m sure I ve met them before The setting is on target, and anyone who s been on campus will recognize the overheated, under decorated room where creativity is supposed to flourish Add in constructive criticism that quickly becomes personal, and writers with bruised egos What could you wa [...]

    One word Brilliant More words contains some of the most telling, pungent, and vividly economical character descriptions I have ever read Also damn near herniated myself laughing But there s to it than just the laughter As I said, brilliant Up there with Old Pop s Last Beer and Austism as Dwayne Fry s best work.

  5. Joed Jackson

    This was a highly entertaining read for me Perhaps it took me back to to my own college days It certainly dredged up memories of my own 83 Citation in dried out re fried bean brown Dwayne Fry has a wit and humor that draws you in and makes you feel like one of the guys Writers and readers everywhere will find this book a must have Okay, enough said.

  6. Shoshanah Marohn

    This is a great book for writers to read, and who isn t a writer of some sort, these days I laughed out loud many times during this short tale I felt like I really knew these people, and I hated them In a good way This was really funny.

  7. Missy Sheldrake

    A highly entertaining short with caricatures of the typical writers one might find in a writing workshop I really enjoyed this quick read by Dwayne I recommend it to authors and readers alike I especially liked the ending, which was unexpected, but made me happy Excellent

  8. Brian Marohn

    I ve been in this class I laughed out loud several times I have taken creative writing class, and this story rings so true Funny little story I especially enjoyed the trite advice from the teacher I really hope he made that part up.

  9. Anna Adler

    This novella wasn t quite what I expected I ve never taken a creative writing class and I picked this up kind of to find out what it s like Turns out I wasn t very fond of the satirical, overdrawn characters I would have preferred a realistic approach What took me by surprise though was that this book wasn t really about writing The tiniest bud of a romance emerged toward the end Nothing overdrawn or satirical about it it was realistic, well written, and as such immensely touching I ve rarely s [...]

  10. V.M. Sawh

    With his final scene, Dwayne Fry elevates his story about students in a writing class into something resembling literary fiction of the highest order Sweet, hilarious and refreshingly frank in its unflinching evaluation of the writing class , this story works on multiple levels There is the easy humour, the deep satire and the creeps up on you real lesson, or real story to be told When you ve finished, you ll find yourself doing some soul searching about why you write If you look deeper into Fry [...]
