$120.00 (10% off for members)

In this 4-session course, join a community of writers to get feedback on your fiction or creative non-fiction. In our first session, we’ll talk about the revision and feedback process as well as how to select excerpts from your work to submit for review and questions to ask. Then in the next three weeks, students will present short samples of their work to receive instant feedback on strengths and suggestions for revision. We’ll model our workshop on the “Writer’s Room” in the television industry, a dynamic space where writers get together to break down stories in an interactive live discussion. Time permitting, we'll also do short writing exercises. Four Wednesdays: January 20, 27, February 3, 10, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Online Class.
