Individual Workshops are also available: 5 two-hour sessions for $200. I tailor the workshop to the goals you'd like to reach. I have worked with writers to produce new work, edit individual pieces and structure whole manuscripts.
The workshop is centered around the idea that when a community of writers comes together to read and write, what what is produced is so much more effective than to write only in a room of your own. To facilitate this process, the workshop will ask you to stretch yourself through diverse writing prompts and diverse readings. The personal lens is powerful and so are the people who write it. It is the job of the workshop to create a space where writers can express that power. Both workshops are generative and also provide ample space for workshopping the work produced. As well, I provide written feedback on each writer's work each week.
10% of the registration fee goes to Fire Historical and Cultural Arts Collaborative - a social justice non- profit that engages traditionally marginalized youth to transform their lives and the life of the community through the arts.
