Biblio Breakdown: How to Go Really Big in Your Writing

Writer's Workshop
Wed, May 4, 2022
7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

In Biblio Breakdown, instructor Ekta Garg will offer analysis and writing exercises based on a book so you can see what it did well and practice it yourself.

Writers who already have a work in progress will benefit most (but anyone is welcome!) For this Breakdown, we'll talk about how to go big in our work--as in, really big--within the context of Anthony Doerr's latest book Cloud Cuckoo Land.

About the presenter: Ekta R. Garg is a freelance editor and a short story judge for both the Florida Writers Association and Saturday Writers, the St. Louis-based chapter of the Missouri Writers' Guild. She hosts Biblio Breakdown, the writing podcast from The Writescast Network that now airs on her own author website, and reviews books for her book review blog, The Write Edge Bookshelf, as well as NetGalley and Bookpleasures. She lives in Central Illinois with her husband and family.
