The Writer Within

Ofir Touché Gafla

Award-winning author and creative writing instructor Ofir Touché Gafla leads this workshop that examines the creative process and provides tips for taking your writing to the next level. Gafla will discuss the myriad advantages of fiction writing, how to approach the daunting task of translating an idea into a full-blown story, the marriage of content and structure, developing one’s voice, and looking for the writer within through getting acquainted with one’s profound subtext.

Gafla is the author of six novels, including The World of the End, The Day the Music Died, and The Book of Disorder, and teaches creative writing at the Sam Spiegel School of TV and Cinema in Jerusalem. He has also been a guest teacher at the University of Texas, Austin.

This event will be held at The Opposite House.
