MICRO WORKSHOP: Claudia Savage's Introduction to Poetry Workshop | Jan 25 SPACE AVAILABLE

Capturing the Wild Storm: A Poetry Workshop for Beginners

We've all wished we could capture a moment in our lives more deeply—the precise way it felt in the body, the sounds and colors, the essence of the experience. Poetry gives us this chance. A way to intensify a moment. In this three-hour workshop we will share the work of poets we love, uncover new ones, make our own poems, collaborate together, and begin to discover how creating poems can help us awaken more fully to the magnificence of life.

Jennifer Lauck's Methods of Memoir Workshop: Turn Life into Story | Feb 2 - Mar 2 AVAILABLE

This is a workshop based, lab style writing class where you learn how to hone your lived experience into a well told story.  Since we are culling our teaching from literature, fiction writers are welcome and will learn as much about craft as the memoir writer.  You will be reading your work out loud, creating new work from prompts, and studying essay's, short stories, movies (for structure). I'll also be incorporating great advice from other writers including Debra Qwartney, Bernard Cooper, Jane Smiley, Robert McKee and Stephen King. This is a terrific class for the writer who had some experience with their craft and needs a community, as well as mentorship.  You will leave these classes inspired and energized.  

NOTE:  Former students of The Bones of Storytelling and AM Craft Class will be very happy here as well.

Claudia Savage's Beginning Poetry Workshop | Feb 8 - Mar 29 AVAILABLE

A Poet's Rhythm

Establishing a rhythm for generating and editing is a path to both effectiveness and joy as a poet. But, it can feel daunting as a beginner. In this class we’ll generate work through collaboration and the use of prompts. And, we'll discover exciting methods for editing work and allowing poems to reach their artistic potential. Through it all, we'll read poems for inspiration, discuss form, and share our weekly writing experiences in order to embrace the poet's life.

Franny French's Short Fiction Workshop | Feb 18 - Mar 18 AVAILABLE

Less Is the New Black

“Get in, get out. Don’t linger,” Raymond Carver famously said. In this class, we’ll do Carver one better by work-shopping 500- to 2,000-word stories. We’ll learn to tell by omission—in other words, what to leave out—and strip language to its core to discover what makes a short-short story really sing. In the course of five weeks, we’ll focus on voice, dialogue, scene, summary, and how to come in and go out with a bang. Student working on novels with micro chapters that can stand alone as works of fiction are also welcome.

Wayne Gregory's Writers's Toolbox Workshop | Feb 21 - Mar 21 AVAILABLE

Essentials of the Craft

You know you want to write and you have a story to tell. Now, you want to dig in and find out how. This workshop will help you learn some of the basic conventions for good writing that successful writers use.  You will learn how to avoid common errors that beginning writers often make and how to show rather than tell your story.  You will gain strategies for organizing your ideas into a narrative that engages your readers and keeps them turning the pages for more. Students will learn by doing writing exercises with their own work each week and will take away a wealth of writing tools and resources to keep honing their craft after the workshop is over.  Discover the tools you need to take your stories to the next level.

SPRING: Emily Whitman’s Young Adult and Middle Grade Novel Workshop | Mar 31 - Apr 28

 

Are you writing a Young Adult or Middle Grade novel, and looking for a fresh jolt of inspiration? Or are you hoping to find a spark, a voice, to launch something new? This class is about making discoveries. We’ll do exercises to liberate ideas and surprise us into finding new directions. We’ll explore techniques and discuss what helps and hinders our work. While this will be a wide-ranging class, expect a focus on characters—how to deepen, enrich, and understand them, and how to let them show the way. This might lead us to work with expressing emotion, using setting and space, giving information without slowing the story, and maintaining tension to keep the pages turning. This generative, no-homework class is for writers at all levels and stages. Come set your writing voice free.

SPRING: Natalie Serber's Personal Essay Workshop | Mar 31 - Apr 28

You've got a story, a topic to explore, an observation, a memory and, best of all, a completely distinctive point of view—yours. In this course we will explore ways convert the messiness of life into an essay that impacts readers with the same vigor and vitality as our lived experiences have affected us.  For our stories to be interesting to a reader, they must connect the truth we discover about ourselves with a larger truth. We will employ literary tools such as voice, structure, scenic details, characters and narrative persona to write vivid kick-ass essays. We’ll read and discuss a variety of writers such as Zadie Smith, Joan Didion, Meghan Daum, Jo Ann Beard, Charlie Baxter, Wells Tower and others. Our weekly exercises will illustrate and explore craft topics while generating new work and creating opportunities to go deeper. Our time together will culminate in a workshop of a longer piece from each member of the class. New and seasoned writers are welcome.

SPRING: Wayne Gregory's So You Wanna Be A Writer Workshop | Apr 4 - May 2

You have a thousand stories inside your head. You dabble on the page but rarely if ever finish anything, much less share with others. “Is my work good enough?” you wonder. “Do I have something original and interesting to say? What makes me think I can be a writer?” The biggest obstacle for emerging writers is neither a lack of time nor a lack of skill nor a lack of things to write about. It’s a lack of self-confidence. This workshop is designed for those who want to be writers, but are not sure they can be. If you have never published anything or even successfully completed a work of fiction or non-fiction, this class will help you gain the confidence you need to enter the community of writers. Find out your writing strengths and build on them. In the process, discover what it is about you that makes your stories worth telling and makes you the only writer who can tell them.

SPRING: Andrea Hollander's Fixed and Open Forms Poetry Workshop AM | Apr 29 - May 27

 

We’ve often heard that we must learn the rules before we can break them. Whether or not you believe this adage, there is certainly nothing to be lost and much to be gained from attempting to write in traditional forms, as well as from crafting poems that depend upon the (open) forms of our own creation. The former is often a springboard to the latter. In this workshop for poets of all levels of experience, we will learn by reading, discussing, and of course by doing. Come with an open (rather than fixed) mind, an empty notebook, and your favorite pen or pencil.

SPRING: Paulann Petersen's Second Sight Poetry Workshop | May 7 - June 4

The word "revision" offers us a bracing truth. To truly revise is to do much more than mere editing and tinkering: it's learning to see our poems anew, moving them toward their strengths. In this workshop, we'll spend the sessions critiquing your poems, looking at possible directions for revision. I'll use these critiques as opportunities for short lessons, addressing issues of craft raised by the particular poem we're looking at. There's no way to predict exactly which craft issues will emerge, but surely line integrity (line breaks), sound form (musical devices), compression, tone, effectiveness of trope, and dramatic strategy will be among them. This workshop is open to writers of all levels of experience.
