The Writers Circle - In-person classes in Northern NJ
I am delighted to teach with The Writers Circle, offering in-person classes in several locations in northern The Winter 2014 session is now underway; in some cases, writers are able to join a session mid-stream. Contact TWC for those details.
Right now (Winter 2014), I am teaching Memoir and Personal Essay/CNF on Monday nights, and lead the Adult Writers Circle (all-genre workshop) on Monday mornings, both in Summit; and Memoir and Personal Essay/CNF in the South Orange location on Wednesday evenings.
Be sure to visit The Writers Circle site to see everything they offer, and to complete registration.
Memoir & Personal Essay/Creative Nonfiction
In this workshop that draws from the world around us and within, participants can work on developing short and long forms of personal essay, memoir, literary journalism, travel, flash nonfiction, or other nonfiction narratives. The emphasis will be on developing strong skills to transform experiences from life and the real world into compelling prose that engages and moves discriminating readers. Topics will include developing voice and tone; using dialogue, scene and details; rhythm and language; and experimenting with structure and form. Publication will also be discussed. Details here.
Adult Writers Circle
Whether you're just dabbling with an idea, have a full length project in draft, or anything in between, the Circle provides a supportive, welcoming environment where you can work freely on whatever projects inspire you most. You will explore and develop your writing week after week through the insights, guidance and open discussions of the group and instructor. Craft issues like structure, point-of-view, character development, pace, and voice are inevitably addressed through the natural progression of each writer's offerings. With great respect for each member of the circle, these very special workshops take on a life of their own as writers learn to trust and rely on the ongoing critique and inspiration as the Circle moves them toward completion and eventual publication.
