Fall Winter

2011-12


Dear Friends, With great excitement I welcome you to our season. We have theatrical performances in Spanish and workshops for writers, visiting authors and storytimes for kids… and so much more! As I read through our fall and winter brochure I am struck by the variety of programs and events, and our relentless focus on our goals: celebrate reading, increase literacy, support writers, promote theatre — make art! Yes, at the heart of what we do at the Center is joy, and our desire to help you live joyfully through literary undertakings. We just want to share the joy that reading a good book, helping children learn to read or watching a good play can kindle in all of our lives. We are just shy of celebrating our tenth year of programming. Just a couple of months more and we will reach this important milestone. And I as I take stock of all we have done for you and with you, I can't help but feel joyful. The Center’s fall will deliver on our promise to you, made ten years ago — quality literary programs that promote cultural engagement. Reading, taking part in theatre, writing… all are wonderful fun because the act of creation is so satisfying, so much a part of what it means to be human. We are working on big celebrations to happen in 2012, but right now, with this brochure, I unveil our first big bang — new name! The hopes and dreams we've nurtured into programs over the past ten years have helped us become the place South Floridians look to when they want to bring the joy of literature into their lives. And we heard it again and again: the Center, the Center … and so we've officially adopted it as our new name—

Keeping it simple, keeping it focused on your wants and needs, making sure that at The Center you always find the kind of programming that nourishes, that helps you feel fulfilled, and above all, joyful. With my best wishes,

Alina Interián Executive Director The Center @ MDC

Fall 2011 Miami Writers Institute 3-day workshop: Wednesday, November 16 - Friday, November 18, 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.

Oulipo Tricks for Beginning Writers with Ana Menendez Still waiting for the Muse? Think you need to be “inspired” to write? Wasting precious writing time waiting for the mood to strike? The only way to be a writer is to write. A lot. And that’s what we’ll be doing in this workshop. Not the Muse, not Inspiration, YOU, the writer, will be in control of your own writing. Following an Oulipo-inspired course of constrained writing, we will write every day and learn by doing. We’ll do a series of exercises designed to get your imagination working and your fingers typing and by the end of the three days, everyone will have developed a few tricks for continuing the writing habit on their own.

3-day workshop: Wednesday, November 16 - Friday, November 18, 10 a.m. -12 p.m.

Secrets of Publishing with Amy Rennert

Literary Agent Amy Rennert demystifies the publishing process for fiction and nonfiction writers. She discusses what to do before approaching agents, how to write query letters and proposals that will get prompt attention, how to develop strong relationships with appropriate agents and editors, and how to make sure books reach the widest audience possible. The session will also cover agency agreements and contracts as well as selfpublishing and e-book options. Throughout the course there will be time for specific questions from students and Amy will offer inspiration and practical suggestions. All attendees will have a much better sense for their own next steps when the session concludes.

3-day workshop: Wednesday, November 16 - Friday, November 18, 2 - 5 p.m.

Keeping Fiction Wild with Pablo Medina

The primary way in which stories are shaped these days is via the workshop method, with its emphasis on craft and technique (elements of balance) without sufficient (if any) attention to urgency and necessity, to mention two elements that define wildness. The result is an enormous number of prim, proper, but dull stories. How do we recognize wildness in our fiction, how do we sustain it? We will try to answer these questions through examples drawn from Denis Johnson, Jorge Luis Borges, Virginia Woolf, and others and work to enhance and sustain wildness in fiction through a series of exercises.

Justificación y Objetivo con José Ignacio Valenzuela Frente a una página en blanco, hay dos alternativas: o paralizarse de miedo, o lanzarse al vacío y bucear hasta dar con un buen resultado. Este taller es para gente que opta por tomar un lápiz para dejar salir, por medio de palabras, todos sus sueños, juegos, miedos y fantasmas. Existen maneras de estimular la imaginación, hay formas de invocar a "la musa", se puede jugar con las palabras al tiempo que se profundiza en uno mismo. Nada más terapéutico y sanador que mirarse a uno mismo, para a partir de ahí crear cuentos, poemas, semblanzas y mundos distintos pero que, sin embargo, todos podemos reconocer. Al final del taller los alumnos habrán escrito pequeños textos literarios que ilustrarán sus diferentes intereses y capacidades narrativas.
