Update: The contest is now closed. Thanks so much to everybody who entered! The winners were picked at random from all the entries. Congratulations Max Schwager, Shoshana, and Katie!

I would take a writing seminar from Anne Rice, because not only is she one of my favorite novelists, she also seems like a fascinating person!

I'd take a writing seminar from Sarah Vowell because her books have the perfect combination of geekery, dark humor, and insight. And even if my own writing didn't improve, I bet she'd be hilarious the whole time.


Tyler Martins said...

I'd take a seminar from Tennessee Williams. Even his stage directions are beautiful and so insightful to read!!

I'd take a seminar from Francine Pascal, the creator of the Sweet Valley series. I'm not even joking. Because oh my god, I loved those books, and I'd love to hear more from the brain that spurned them.

Michael Cunningham. Not only my favorite author but also the most emotionally intelligent person on Earth. He is a deity and the few times I have been in his presence have been religious experiences.


Katie said...

I would love to take a seminar from Roald Dahl, I want to know how he came up with such magical stories such as Matilda. I can map my childhood in his books that I read, so great. @ktflood.

I would take a writing seminar from Ian McEwan. I want to know how he writes those crisp, lean sentences of his.

Suzanne Collins, because I am re-reading the Hunger Games now and dang they are good.

Extra entry for Tweeting, please

I would take one with Tom Stoppard. I know he doesn't write novels, but his writing is truly inspired and thought-provoking and brilliant.

Shoshana said...

I know its cliche but probably JK Rowling. I consider the Harry Potter series to be pretty much perfect books in every way.


Jerry S said...

Well, this is hypothetical and I know I won't be able to actually take a seminar from JD.
Last night, I saw "An Early History of Fire" , so all I can think of today is "The Catcher in the Rye". So beam me up with a writing seminar by JD Salinger.

Nicholas Sparks - because he seems to have mastered the concept of variations on a theme
