Marc’s writing workshops are based on his Corwin Press book, Putting Everyday Life on the Page. Mr. Levitt looks first at how seemingly unimportant experiences and details can become the basis for interesting and absorbing writing. Marc is above all else, a ‘Writing Motivator’, encouraging even the most reluctant writer to write and to tell their stories.

In these workshops, Mr. Levitt utilizes a series of games and exercises to teach:

  • Topic selection
  • Sequential thinking
  • Colorful language and metaphor
  • Beginnings and endings
  • Character development
  • Topic selection
  • Creating a writer-friendly classroom
  • Interviewing techniques
