About the Workshop:

For those who want to take their writing to the next level in a small, intimate setting, and meet other like-minded individuals, this is the course for you. Prior to each meeting, participants will read each other’s chapters or stories (around 15 pages each) and give feedback to the author, creating an organic group to offer constructive criticism, tips, and motivation. There will also be optional prompts and condensed craft lectures tailored to issues that organically arise from each week’s readings.

This course is designed with the goal of generating pages and having eyes on those pages, and is best for those who are well into a draft of a book, or looking to revise a story, essay, or creative-nonfiction piece for publication.
