Classes and Workshops

Upcoming Classes:

Less Is More: Writing Micro

Spring: May 3 – 30 (Class is full)

Fall: October 11 – November 7

This four-week class will be limited to twelve participants in order to guarantee an experience that is both fun and productive.

Here’s how it will go down: During the first two weeks of class, you’ll generate micros (fiction or nonfiction, fewer than 300 words) in response to each of six prompts. Each prompt will be preceded by a brief piece of (published) prose and a short discussion of the aspects of craft — characterization, setting, point of view, and structure – that are key to an effective piece of short prose. 

During Weeks Three and Four, you’ll revise and share two of your prompts in an informal workshop that’s designed to be both constructive and helpful. 

Course fee: $110

Much More Than Less: Writing Micro

Spring: March 8 – 28, 2021 (Class is full)

Fall: November 29 – December 19

Three weeks of generative prompts focusing on the craft of writing micro as well as writing for specific markets.

Course fee: $90

“Now We’re Getting Somewhere”: A Poetry Boot Camp

Spring: April 12 – May 1 (Class is full)

Fall: September 13 – October 3

Join us for this generative three-week workshop inspired by poems from Kim Addonizio’s new book Now We’re Getting Somewhere (Norton 2021). 

How it works: You’ll respond to three prompts per week as well as participate in weekly informal discussions based on selected poems from the book. All work is asynchronous except for a Zoom reading and Q&A with Kim (date and time TBA). 

To buy the book (required), please visit your local indie bookstore or order online when it releases in March. 

Course fee: $100
