Next Writing Course Starts Jan 10, 2024
Personal Essay and Memoir Workshop on Zoom. Apply by December 13.
The last class was so good that we had to do another. Below is what you need to know.
What it is:
A six-week, once-a-week online workshop, on Zoom, for intermediate to advanced writers.
When it is:
Every Wednesday for six weeks, beginning January 10 and running through February 14, 2024, 2 to 4pm ET. If that’s your meal time, feel free to eat discreetly during the class.
How it will work:
The class meets once a week for two hours on Zoom. I will lead general conversations about craft and the business of publishing (and we may get in a guest speaker about that) as well as discussions of student work. Depending on the size of the class, students will have one to two opportunities to workshop manuscripts up to 15 double-spaced pages each, with at least 45 minutes devoted to each workshop discussion.
At some point during the course, each student will have the opportunity to meet with me privately on Zoom for 45 minutes. We can use this time to discuss your pages or any other writing-related issue.
Class size to be determined, but will not exceed 12 students.
How to apply:
Please send a writing sample not exceeding 15 double-spaced pages along with a note explaining your creative and professional goals to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, December 13, 2023.
I will get back to you within a few days of the deadline.
