with Julie Sarkissian
As writers, we draw on many sources of inspiration, instruction, and guidance to bring our projects to fruition, but no organon is more important than our individual artistic intuition. In this three-hour, hybrid editorial-generative class, each writer will submit pages each week in advance of class, and the group will come to class having read everyone’s work. Feedback will be shared, contextualized by the writer’s specific goals, challenges and intentions. Then the writers will turn back to their writing, working in class to find “the next right thing for the work,” be that directly incorporating the class’s feedback, moving forward with a new scene, developing an old one, adding a new layer or story-line, etc. Finally, we will share what changes we added to the manuscript, and, time permitting, have a second round of feedback. A writing sample of 250 words maximum is required for entrance to this workshop.
