APPS DUE Aug 31: Creative Nonfiction (CNF) Studio | Sep 17 - Dec 10

Write what you know you want to know

The Creative Nonfiction (CNF) Studio is based on the idea that inspiration, accountability, and community are essential to every writer’s growth. The CNF Studio meets weekly for multi-month sessions, and its curriculum is designed to help you deepen your writing through a keener understanding of both literary craft and your own voice. The CNF Studio is open to applications from all writers, and members often return for multiple sessions. This creates the Studio’s special experience: a consistent, deep, and supportive study of your writing in the company of other writers. Each weekly session includes a close-reading and discussion of a selected work of creative nonfiction, a roundtable reading of take-home prompts, and in-depth critique of several works-in-progress. Over the course of their time in the CNF Studio, writers can expect to read widely and gain deep insight into their own writing, all the while exploring questions of structure, form, narration, truth, memory, influence, and voice.  The Studio culminates in a celebration at a nearby watering hole. | Maximum 10 students

SUMMER Online: Micro Memoir Workshop II w Matthew Dickman | July 12 - Aug 9 FULL -- WAIT LIST ONLY

The smallest moment can profoundly change your life, a smell briefly caught on a walk can send you back in time, objects hold whole multi-histories and as the writer Jay Ponteri says "memories nest inside other memories". In this 5 week class we will be exploring memory and the tools of the memoir genre to write our own "Micro-Memoirs". These will be 1-5 page prose pieces. We will also be reading a lot of outside examples of this and writing together in class. This class is open to all writers, whether you identify as a poet, fiction, or creative non-fiction writer. Whoever you are let's all explore together! | Maximum: 12 writers

NOTE: Writers may take this class without having previously taken Micro Memoir I.

SUMMER Online: Poets Studio Summer Sessions | July 13 - Aug 31

Apps due July 8

One of the things I feel Poets Studio participants, regardless of experience and skill, can benefit from, is an extended concentration on only a few pieces over a couple months. That’s my goal for the Summer Sessions, which would progress as follows:

Sessions 1-3: Making. We’ll start from scratch on a few poems, developing strategies of imagination, research, trial and error, and writing several “test” drafts over several weeks.  

Sessions 4-6: Noticing. Here we’ll begin to be attentive to what might be possible with various drafts of poems, in the writing process — noticing what they are doing and not doing, what they are implying and avoiding, and what they are potentially able to become, and what they can’t ever become (but might as well try it out to find out for sure), as we make more and more drafts.  

Sessions 7-9: Changing. Someone else, not me, would call these last three sessions, Revision. The goal of the last three sessions is to continue making changes, narrowing the possibilities, all the way until your poem or poems are “finished.”  

My hope is that, after the nine Summer Sessions, you’ll have freshly experienced a process of writing, including writing together each week during Poets Studio on Monday nights (and Sunday afternoons), that gives you new tools, skills, and patience for writing your poems. The goal of the summer is for everyone to finish 2-3 brand new poems, while we’re all in conversation with each other, crafted during the Summer Sessions, and then to prepare these, as you see fit, to submit for publication in the fall.  

To apply: Email six poems and a 100+ word description of your experience writing poems over the last five years.

SUMMER/FALL Online: The Life of a Story Workshop w Joanna Rose | Aug 1 - Oct 10

There are only two or three human stories, and they go on repeating themselves as if theyhad never happened before -  Willa Cather, in O Pioneers

Learn ways to build a story of any length by looking at the timeless elements of myth and the structure of the archetypal journey as they appear in literature and film. Open to writers at any stage of their writing. We’ll look at ways to develop characters with consequence and stories with shape. There will be assignments that can reflect work in progress or brand new writing done just for the workshop. | Maximum: 12 writers | No class Sep 5

SUMMER Online: What My Stomach Says: Food Writing Workshop w Zahir Janmohamed | Aug 8

If you did a scan of my brain, food would probably occupy at least 70% of my thoughts. And for good reason: food is an incredible vehicle to speak about pleasure, pain, history, family, nostalgia, place, race, gender, class, sexuality, colonialism—you name it. In this generative class, students will be asked to think about a dish that they love. It could be savory or sweet. They will then write the opening of an essay about this dish as well as the recipe for this very dish. We will then conclude the class by discussing ways to get this piece published.

FALL Online: Intro to Flash Nonfiction w Brian Benson | Sep 15 - Oct 13

Flash nonfiction, simply put, is true-to-life writing defined by extreme compression: it's saying what you've got to say using as few words, and as much beauty, as possible. An endlessly accessible, playful, potent form, flash nonfiction is evermore popular; from Brevity to BarrenThe Forge to The Sun, legions of journals are eager to publish great flash.

In this prompt-driven workshop, we'll read short nonfiction by master writers, including Ross Gay, Natalie Lima, Ira Sukrungruang, Roxane Gay, Jerald Walker, Ruth Ozeki, and many more; we'll talk about what stories are suited for flash, how to tell them well, and where to publish them; and most of all, we'll write, and write, and write, via in-class exercises and take-home prompts. Students will leave the class with reams of new writing and ideas for where to publish.

This class is not a classic  writing workshop but instead will be an explorative and generative gathering. We will be reading, talking, writing, and sharing! | Maximum: 10 writers

FALL Online: Tell It True, Tell It Slant: Creative Nonfiction Workshop w Zahir Janmohamed | Sep 15 - Oct 13

Think of a label on a fine wine. If it is well written, it should describe the wine and invoke mood, emotion, and place. Great nonfiction, I believe, aspires to do this. It speaks about a narrow thing and also a much bigger thing. In this five-week course, we will study the various forms of nonfiction writing, with an emphasis on personal essay writing. Students will learn craft tips and get a chance to workshop their writing. My goal is to encourage students to try something new, be it satire or reportage or memoir. At the end of class, we will discuss the ins and outs of publishing and how to pitch stories to editors.

FALL Online: First Impressions: Chapter One (Fiction) w Whitney Otto | Sep 16 - Oct 14

The opening of a novel is like meeting someone for the first time. In that same way that there is something that makes you want to know more about that person, there is something that makes you want to turn the page. Some first pages are action-packed, others are poetic, or open with a line of dialog, or an idea—there is no single way to engage the reader. That first impression is the difference between engaging the reader (or the agent or the editor), or having your book languish on a nightstand. In this workshop, we will talk about how to get and hold the reader’s attention through various readings of the beginnings of first chapters. You will also asked to write short, first chapter pieces, in various genres, or you can refine something that you are currently working on. This workshop could be the beginning of your beginning.

FALL Online: Writer’s Crucible Workshop w Philip Kenney | Sep 19 - Oct 17

This class is designed for students who wish to deepen their understanding of the emotional and psychological restrictions that interfere with their work. These issues have taken on even greater significance during this time of social unrest and Pandemic anxiety. Many writers are feeling their creative initiative stymied by brain static and emotional overload. In this five-week class, we will use the text of The Writer’s Crucible as a starting point for an exploration of the emotional vulnerabilities we are familiar with and the challenges unique to the present day.

Why the Crucible? Crucible is defined as: A situation of severe trial, or in which different elements interact, leading to the creation of something new. Writers know what it is to go through the crucible. It is trial by fire and the joy of making something new. This is the agony and the ecstasy of our work. We will explore in depth, the psychological, emotional and creative aspects that interact in this dynamic process and move us to experience such a tremendous range of feeling.

Participants will come to a better understanding of their own psychology and develop improved ways of providing self-support through difficult times. In particular, this workshop will delve into material related to emotional flooding, shame-based reactions to rejections and critique, managing and confronting negative self-talk and the ways in which trauma lives in the body and psyche. We will also look at spiritual methods of understanding the creative process and in short meditations to transform states of emotional constriction into states of openness. 

This workshop will offer both an intellectual understanding of the material and experiential processes that make what we learn personally relevant. Each class will include exercises designed to connect us with and accept our emotional life. We will use writing prompts to explore the psychological material and have small group sessions to share insights and experiences that come up in the course of the program. There will be ample time to question and comment on the readings and class presentations.

FALL Online: Poetry of the Ecstatic Unknown Workshop w Ashley Toliver | Sep 21 - Oct 19

“Whatever inspiration is, it’s born from a continuous ‘I don’t know.’” ~ Wisława Szymborska

In this class, we’ll approach writing as an emergent process, using Gertrude Stein’s famous line, “And then there is using everything” as our guide and north star. Each session, we’ll work to connect with the inherent and subtle creativity of the body through exercises designed to help us cross the threshold to what is unknown. In the spirit of shared experiment, we’ll push our poetic inquiries further through selected readings from contemporary poetry and assignments geared toward exploring this new new territory of the interior. Through sustained experimentation, interaction and collaboration, you’ll find new fluidity in your work and open the potential for grace in the process.

FALL Online: Self-Portraits: Writing from Life w David Biespiel | Sep 27 | 9am-4pm

This workshop, led by Attic Institute founder David Biespiel, is the kind of study every writer needs, from beginners to the most advanced. It's an opportunity to write from studying your own self-portrait via photos, drawings, snapshots, b&ws, candids, distortions, &c. The workshop approach empahsizes the concept of obseravtional writing as a direct route to achieve new imaginative possibilities, whether you're writng fiction, memoir, or poems. The approach demands careful observation and the translation of those observations into clear and precise notes, jottings, and studies. Self-portrait writing is one of the foundational skill sets that all writers should practice. It hones your concentration on details and the language that comes from those details, and it releases you into new zones for your memories and projections to emerge. Our focus will be almost entirely on making new pieces of writing with hardly any time dedicated to critique or revision. Included in your tuition is a signed copy of the tenth anniversary edition of David's book, Every Writer Has a Thousand Faces, with a Foreword by Chuck Palahniuk, which we will use as a "textbook" for the workshop. [Because this workshop is seven hours, there will be frequent, scheduled breaks to step away from the computer screen and rest.]

FALL Online: Creating a Writer's Notebook: Artifact and Mulch w Wendy Willis | Oct 3 + 17

In this two-day workshop, we will explore the practice of creating and sustaining a writer's notebook. On the first day, we will begin to use a notebook to catch the wisps of our days and uncover the musings of the deep imagination.  Two weeks later, we will come together to discover how the raw material in the notebook can be transformed into finished pieces of writing.
