A supportive community where you can grow as a writer!

6 Mondays, Nov 8 - Dec 13, 2021

7-9pm Pacific time via Zoom

During the course of the 6-week workshop, each student will...

- Email me one piece you've written (up to 1250 words)
- I'll email you suggestions for revision, and you do a rewrite (in 2 hours or less)
- In class you read it to the group, and then we discuss

   what you're discovering about yourself as a writer and how to build on your strengths 

   who you might share the work with (even one person) and how to do it carefully 

Note that you can write in any genre you like, and there is no class performance.


Payment is on a sliding scale:

Employed/doing okay financially: $250

Unemployed/underemployed/financially distressed: $100

Somewhere in between: $175

To enroll:

Email me by Nov. 4, 2021

I'll send you all the info on how to sign up and pay, and answer any questions you have.


  Writing & Performance Consultations
