with Andrea A. Firth
I'm taking some time over the next couple of months to read, write and recharge.
And, I'll be putting together new classes too. Here's what I'm thinking about:
Revision Intensive. I've been thinking a lot about revision, the process of re-evaluating our work, seeing it anew, what that process looks like and how it works. I've been collating insights from a range of writers and resources. And exercises too! Specific things we can all do to move our work forward and polish it to a shine. You'll bring a piece to work through. Single session course.
Personal Essay Workshop. I love essay in all its myriad forms. In this class, I'll be sharing my latest favorites, and we'll look at what's new in essay--so much. The classic with a twist, lyric, hybrid, more. And we'll bump the workshop component up too with insights and editing in class. Multi-week course.
And how about a generative class? Do you want prompts? Freewrites? Accountability? Company? Motivation to get writing and then feedback along the way? Skip reading and analyzing other writers--this class is about you! Focused on getting words on the page, sharing, and giving/receiving supportive feedback. My latest class, On the Spot, was just that and we generated great work, some already published. Let's do it again. Multi-week course.
I'll be back in the next month with more detailed descriptions, dates, and times. In the meanwhile, if any of these classes is of interest, please feel to drop me an email and let me know what sounds good, when it works best for you, and anything else you want o share. Your input is super helpful to making these classes work. TY!
