THE ART OF BOOK REVEIWING
Wednesday 31 May at 7pm, also at the Electric Sheep Book Bar, Nitranska 7, Prague 2.
Book reviewing is a vital bow in many writers’ income stream; it is one of the most reliable and accessible ways of getting published. In this workshop, I approach book reviews as a meeting ground between the text and a particular reader – you, the critic. The ways to interpret and experience a book are as endless as the people who read them, similarly a review can take many forms.
But critical to a review is the unfolding of a particular viewpoint/s and argument – your own – in response to the text; therefore we will look at ways to construct a coherent narrative within a review. This workshop approaches writing book reviews as an artform in itself.
No need to have studied literature (I didn’t!), just have a love for reading and a desire to understand why we may love/hate/are indifferent to a particular book. The workshop will also touch on practical aspects of pitching and getting published.
Note to participants
If you can, please come with a book in mind that you might want to review – it can be a recent book or an old favourite. Bring it along if possible. There won’t be time in the workshop to write a review, but we will be doing some exercises which might be helpful to apply to a particular book. Look forward to seeing you!
