Samantha Lan Chang will address issues of voice, point of view, lines of tension and plot in the novel. With a flexible approach combining lecture, guided discussion, analysis of excerpts by both masters and workshoppers we will explore novel-writing in all its complexity, in a spirit of mutual support. Each participant will also  have  a private session relating to their manuscript. Please consult the PWW web site for information on manuscript submission guidelines.

Lan Samantha Chang is the author of two novels, All Is Forgotten, Nothing Is Lost and Inheritance, and a collection of short fiction, Hunger.  Hunger was a finalist for a Los Angeles Times Book Award and the winner of the Southern Review Fiction Prize.  Inheritance won the PEN/Beyond Margins Prize for the Novel.  Samantha’s short stories have appeared in The Atlantic Monthly, Ploughshares, and Best American Short Stories. She received fellowships from the American Library in Paris, the Radcliffe Institute, the National Endowment for the Arts and the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation.  She has taught fiction writing at Stanford University, where she was a Stegner Fellow, and at the MFA Program for Writing at Warren Wilson College.  She is a Professor of English and Creative Writing and Director of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop at the University of Iowa.
