Dick Couch is a writer and a teacher. He has conducted writing workshops for the College of Southern Idaho and lectured on creative writing at the US Naval Academy. His programs address fiction, nonfiction, and the crafting of technical content in a variety of formats. Topics covered include plotting, pace, character development, dialogue, and conventions that address first/third person issues, the use white space, and self talk/ perspective.
Past the creative and mechanical aspects of writing, Dick has a separate program that addresses the care and feeding of literary agents, dealing with mainstream publishers, and the emerging and explosive self-publishing industry. While his own work is grounded in works of fiction and nonfiction associated with military special operations, he is equally comfortable in other genres of the creative writing process.
“I’ve learned a great deal during my twenty-five years in this business—from more rejection letters than I care to remember to a place on the New York Times Best Seller List. Now one of my great pleasures is to share some of that others.”
Dick is available to create a tailored program built around the parameters of your particular workshop or seminar.
