#Hoboken author Caren Lissner's novel Carrie Pilby was made into a movie now on #Netflix. You can take her one-shot writing class in #NewJersey next month.

Do you have a piece of writing — or an idea for a piece of writing (memoir, novel, script, comedy) — and you need feedback on it or ideas on how to get it published? Now you can learn how in your own back yard. Local novelist (and Reporter editor) Caren Lissner is doing a one-shot writing (and publishing) class at Little City Books in Hoboken on the evening of Thursday, Nov. 2, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. The store is five blocks from the Hoboken light rail station. The class is open to all stages, ages, and genres – from memoirs to fiction to scripts.
Those who’ve written their story, essay, poem, novel excerpt, or screenplay can bring 1 to 5 double-spaced pages, or those who just want to participate in discussion (auditors) can come and sit in (and maybe bring writing to a future class). As of this writing, only a few spots remained to bring work, but more sports were still available for auditors — who can participate in the discussion of writing and publication. You can go to “events” for Nov. 2 at littlecitybooks and select “auditor”.
Lissner’s funny first novel, “Carrie Pilby,” was just turned into a comedy movie starring Nathan Lane, currently available for viewing on Netflix. She has also published articles, essays, and satire in the New York Times, The Atlantic, Harper’s, McSweeney’s, and National Lampoon.
Lissner has run publishing/writing seminars for adults and teens at local libraries and bookstores, and as part of a Scholastic Inc. program in New York. Find out more at carenlissner.com.
There is a nominal fee for the one-shot program, and it’s lower for those who are just auditing. For more information, click here: http://www.littlecitybooks.com/event/get-it-out-writing-and-publishing-workshop-caren-lissner
