I am delighted to teach at the Summit location of The Writers Circle. The Spring II session begins in early May, and Summer session starts in early July.
Creative Nonfiction: Writing from Life and the Real World
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.
Monday nights in Summit. Details here.
Update: The May/June class has started, but you are welcome to come for a one-night try-out ($30); if you like it, you can sign on for the remaining sessions and pay a pro-rated fee. Use this form to request a try-out date, or call: 973-900-0415.
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.Wednesday nights in Summit. Details for Summer Session here.
