Native Reads Analysis Workshop with Sarah Elisabeth Sawyer

  • Webinar
  • Starts Mar 28 at 6:00 PM CDT

Discover how to evaluate a story with Native American characters through this “Native Reads Analysis Workshop.” The book we’re discussing: The Star that Always Stays by Anna Rose Johnson (Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians)

Workshop dates:

Session 1: Tuesday, March 28, 2023, 6 p.m. CST

Session 2: Tuesday, April 4, 2023, 6 p.m. CST

What it is: Two live sessions via Zoom 

• You watch Sarah evaluate the role of Natives in the story.

• You participate in the guided, book club-like discussions.

• You take away practical, applicable insights for your own writing.

Who it’s for: Authors writing Native American characters

Sarah takes misconceptions (such as stereotyping and romanticizing) and shows you what those mean in a real-world example.

This is advanced training, so I recommend you take Sarah’s Fiction Writing: American Indians digital course first, but it’s not a requirement. 

Why authors should join: Learn to apply principles

This Native Reads workshop takes principles in the Fiction Writing: American Indians digital course and applies them by using examples in a published work.

If you haven’t taken the course, you’ll still gain valuable insight and begin learning how to do your own analysis of books and movies.

When it is and how to register:

Session 1: Tuesday, March 28, 2023, 6 p.m. CST

Session 2: Tuesday, April 4, 2023, 6 p.m. CST
