Writing Workshop

25


25 simbi per unit - Virtual OK

Need a second opinion on your poem, short story, chapter of a novel or memoir piece? I will offer an honest critique, tell you what I think is working and what I think needs fixing, and if you like, what I think could be added, just based on my opinion. Getting a second opinion might be just what you need to see your work more objectively!

I'll workshop a work of up to ten pages in length, although we can negotiate if it's longer than that. If it's a novel chapter, please provide context.

Training & Qualifications


I have an MFA in Creative Writing, have written and published one novel, and have taken goodness knows how many workshop classes getting that aforementioned degree. Though my main expertise is fiction I've been in poetry and non-fiction workshop classes too.

Louise-Jayne provided Help with Review My Book for Suren

5.0 out of 5 stars Deeply moving - a future classic. ByLouise J. Haddawayon April 19, 2017 Format: Kindle Edition Deeply moving, thoughtful recounting... of the trials of war overtaking a young boy and his friends in an orphanage in Armenia. A clear rendition in clear and concise voice that both brings you into the past of a harsh survival, and the joys and innocence of a young boy. Finished the book longing for more, and with a lump in my throat and my heart full of sorrow. Won't give it away, but this is a book that will become a classic in understanding the costs of war on the innocent.show more

Suren was very quick, and I loved the outdoor pictures he took. I love traveling and it just gives you the opportunity to see places you may or may no...t get to visit. show more

About Suren Oganessian

My name's Suren Oganessian (a nice unique name I inherited from my grandfather), and I'm an up-and-coming indy novelist with one book out and many more to come soon! I was born in California but have ...been forced to immigrate to Florida in pursuit of the American dream (i.e. affordable housing, gas, everything), although I feel that my heart truly belongs in Armenia, and I volunteered there for six months back in 2015. I have a Master's degree in Creative Writing and the debt to prove it, making Simbi just the kind of place for me.show more
