Essay comes from the French word essayer, which means to try. This class will provide you a space to try, to tell your story, to write a personal essay. Ideal for creative nonfiction writers of all levels. Each week we'll read one or more of my favorite essays and analyze how the personal story comes alive on the page. Plus prompts, in-class writing and exercises, and four facilitated workshops with supportive feedback from your peers and written feedback from me.

How to Get Published

Saturday, October 22nd

 Getting published is a process. Whether you are an experienced writer who wants to publish more, new to submitting and getting ready to send out your first piece or looking for new outlets for writing that is stalled, it’s the same process.

In this course you will learn the steps to follow and the tools and resources to use to submit and be accepted in literary magazines. Plus, you will gain the motivation and encouragement to get started, unstuck, and publishing more. We will create a clear and manageable plan for you to follow and introduce you to range of potential literary outlets for your writing. And there will be ample opportunity to ask questions.
