No Class 11/22

Class is limited to six students.

This course is for writers who want a deeper experience in a smaller class setting.  There will be short in-class writing from fresh prompts but most of the class time will be used for Workshop.  Here is how Workshop is defined:  Students will read from their manuscripts bi-weekly (weekly if attendance permits) and critique be given by classmates verbally and in writing.  Home prompts will be offered but the writing students produce does not need to stem from these.  Students may submit a piece every week, whether it be part of their longer work or something that generated from a prompt. Feedback will be offered by the instructor and conferencing available, by appointment.
