Instructor Biography Chris Terry, MFA, author of the novels Black Card (Catapult, 2019) and Zero Fade (Curbside Splendor, 2013), which was named Best Book of the Year by Slate and Kirkus Reviews. Mr. Terry’s short work has appeared in PANK, Razorcake, Very Smart Brothas, and more. He has taught for PEN America, Writing Workshops LA, and Storycatchers Theatre.

Instructor Statement As a teacher, I feel most successful when my students continue creating outside of the classroom. With that in mind, my goal is to give writers the tools that they need to address various issues, including dialogue, character development, and narrative; and the confidence to keep pressing forward when the writing gets tough.
