Helen Schulman, the author of This Beautiful Life, A Day at the Beach, P.S., and The Revisionist, dialogued with students on the art of fiction in a creative writing workshop. The workshops helped students get started on the stories they´d always wanted to write, focusing on openings, as well as beginning the life long process of learning how to read and think like a writer (not a critic). A group of students who participated in the workshop created a writing club and continue to develop their work and share their progress.
