9:30 am - 12:00 pm
This is an 8-week class that meets every Thursday from January 23-March 12.
Whether writing in a garret, ivory tower, or a fever pitch of blind faith, at some point a writer needs to see other people, preferably equally deranged. For people writing fiction or nonfiction who need regular, astute feedback on ongoing projects of any length, this class provides that hothouse work environment. We’re going to put our manuscripts on the table and ask what works, what seems less effective, and why? Are there several narrative possibilities to the draft? Is the writer’s aim inchoate or focused? Are the form, structure, and pace helping or hindering the essential goal of the narrative?
Tickets for this 8week session are $505. Please register at
