New Creative Writing Class to be Offered in the New Year!

 

 

Writers,

If you are searching for a creative writing class to attend in the new year, please see the details for my upcoming class below:

NEW CLASS! NEW CLASS! NEW CLASS! NEW CLASS! NEW CLASS! 

Memoir Part II – Writing Your Story – Workshop Seminar 1

8 wk workshop seminar (This is the first time I’m offering this class. If it needs to be offered again so writers can finish their stories, it will continue in Seminar 2)

Workshop Your Story!

Utilize the ideas you’ve gathered from Memoir Part 1 – Unfolding Your Story and begin writing your memoir. Over 8 by-weekly classes, your writing will be workshopped by other writers in the class as well as by published writers in the field. You will submit writing every week that will be workshopped as well as workshop other’s writing. This is a safe, honest, compassionate space for constructive criticism that will move your story forward each week. If you have not taken Memoir Part 1 – Unfolding Your Story, but you have memoir ideas gathered that you’d like to have workshopped, please, join us! Memoir Part II – Writing Your Story – Workshop Seminar 1 is a sacred place to bring your memoir alive on the page.

PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU HAVE NOT TAKEN MY FIRST MEMOIR CLASS, BUT YOU HAVE WRITING FOR A MEMOIR THAT YOU’D LIKE TO WORKSHOP, PLEASE JOIN US! YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE TAKEN MEMOIR PART I – UNFOLDING YOUR STORY, IN ORDER TO TAKE MEMOIR PART II – WRITING YOUR STORY – WORKSHOP SEMINAR 1!

Please also note: The reason this class is being offered by-weekly is twofold:

1) We are planning to meet in Marty Gervais’ Writing Salon at the University of Windsor on our ‘off’ classes so to get our writing further workshopped by local writers – including the keen and professional eye of Windsor’s first Poet Laureate, Marty Gervais himself!

2) Having two weeks in between meetings allows more time for us to workshop each other’s writing. This way, we will come prepared and compassionately ready to share our thoughts and opinions.

Class dates: TBA – but they will happen on Mondays. (Marty’s Writing Salon happens on Mondays as well.)

Cost: TBA

What you will need: all the materials you’ve gathered for your memoir, an open mind, an open heart.
