Novelist Mermer Blakeslee’s immensely popular Fiction Writing Workshop begins it’s 36th cycle!
This  Fiction Writing Workshop serves both new and experienced writers.

Mermer Blakeslee is the author of three novels. In Dark Water, called by Connie May Fowler “a novel of uncommon grace and soaring beauty,” was selected by Barnes and Noble for its Discover Great New Writers series. “Blakeslee’s world,” the San Francisco Chronicle stated, “is lyrical and mythic, filled with magic, visions and dreams.” Leenie, an excerpt from her latest novel, When You Live by a River won the Narrative Prize. Blakeslee was awarded three fiction fellowships from the New York Foundation for the Arts. Her roots are in poetry and two of her poems were finalists in Narrative’s First and Second Annual Poetry Contests. Blakeslee is also a professional skier and has worked intensively with fearful students. Her non-fiction book, In the Yikes! Zone has been recently reissued as A Conversation with Fear.
