800 Words or Less is a workshop on brevity. In this workshop you will choose a story from your own life and figure out how to tell it in 800 words or less, just like they do in the New York Times Magazine, Lives Column. Brevity is the name of game; you will ruthlessly edit extra words and unnecessary descriptions to get to the point as quickly as possible!

Please note May 10 is Mother's Day. If you sign up for this workshop you are committing to being here on May 10 from 12:00-2:00 PM.
