Private workshops

I have two private workshops that meet on Zoom. The Writers’ Block Party is a critique group that meets bi-monthly on Thursday nights for writers who have taken writing classes or workshops and are in need of in-depth feedback for fiction or essay/memoir projects. Openings are rare but happen, so don’t be afraid to ask.

There is also the Literary Posse for writers at various levels. Classes include exercises, optional assignments, craft and marketing discussions, and critique. This workshop is geared toward building confidence and getting you focused and in motion so you write what you’re meant to write.

Both are ten-week workshops and each costs $400.

Throughout the year, I teach an online class through Gotham Writers’ Workshop called “Pen on Fire.” This course provides techniques, tricks, and insights that help you push past your worst internal roadblocks. Critique is included as are weekly Zoom meetings. No matter where in the world you live, we can work together. Visit Gotham’s Web site for more information on the class and how to sign up.

I’m on the faculty at Chapman University’s Dodge Film School and Saddleback College’s Emeritus Institute.
