Kate Braverman discusses her experiences as a writer who has won awards in four genres. You must find out what you can do naturally and avoid what you can't do.

She will focus on the schematics of old-school writing. She says, "As an experimental stylist (like Cormac McCarthy in Blood Meridian), I want to show the strings and mirrors of how to make the page an orchestra and how to engage in alchemy. No writer has a full repertoire of tools—Garcia Marquez couldn't give you a plausible female character if you put a gun to his head. Roth is all talk, no landscapes. You'll also have to learn some sophisticated techniques. Dialogue is typically a learned skill. It's my specialty."
