Write Your Life

Fiction & Non-Fiction Writing Workshops

Everyone’s life is full of stories, but to write a novel, a memoir or a riveting personal essay takes craft. These four and six-week intensive boot camps are for those who want to set aside the time and space to write in a supportive environment, learn the craft of fiction, memoir, and personal essays, and get their work out into the world. Each week will include class discussions and readings, writing exercises and group feedback sessions. We will turn off the voice in your head telling you you’re not a writer, push you outside of your comfort zone and get you producing on a regular schedule. The goal of this class is to be generative. By the end of our time together, you will walk away with tons of writing and the tools and techniques for taking your practice to the next level.

Takeaways:

1) Each student will have the opportunity to workshop writing generated during class, and receive peer and instructor feedback.

2) Each student will meet 1-1 with me to do a deeper dive into your writing and where to go next. We will discuss your writing style, goals, areas for improvement, and ideas for how to pitch your stories and where.

3) Each student will have the support of a nurturing community of writers and readers.
