Workshop 101: CREATING

These workshops, organized in 6-meeting sessions (both weekly and bi-weekly), are the foundation of the life stories process. In small groups, we focus upon discovering and creating our stories. Activities both in-workshop and between meetings build upon each other, so that you create an ever-growing body of your own writing. You also evaluate and choose the ultimate destination — autobiography, memory, story collection, blog, podcast, etc. — that best fits your individual goals.

Workshop 201: IMPROVING

These workshops, also organized into 6-meeting seasons, follow your completion of a manuscript draft. These workshops are about evaluating work to make it better. Rewriting, revising, editing — these are all about making our work say what we want to say, and to say it in our own, individual voices.

1-on-1 Sessions: FINISHING

There is great value in working in groups — in encouraging, in sharing and, when we share, in being both the writer and the critical reader. However, sometimes you also have individual goals and needs, especially when you are in the midst of a long project. That’s why we also meet in individual sessions that focus in depth on your work. These individual sessions will often run parallel to the workshops.

Fall 2018 Workshop: “AFTER: Writing about Loss and What Comes Next”

If loss is an unavoidable part of the human condition, so is making sense of it—and we make sense through the way we tell our stories. This workshop, meeting weekly for six weeks, is for writers of any ability and experience who have learned something from loss and now wish to share it.

Call for submissions for “AFTER: Stories about Loss and What Comes Next”

We are looking for a small number of contributors to add to a forthcoming book, tentatively titled AFTER: Stories about Loss and What Comes Next, on the theme of loss and its aftermath. Contributors will have great latitude regarding genre and approach, so long as the submissions are true. The final deadline for press-ready pieces is Monday, November 5, 2018, to reach publication in 2018.
