with Julie Sarkissian


In this 2.5 hour in-person workshop, writers are challenged to write beyond their edge by utilizing examples of superlative prose, study of craft and group feedback. Writers will bring up to 1200 words to class which they will read aloud to the group and on which they will receive group and instructor feedback. Identifying strengths and weaknesses of their own pieces, writers will utilize craft and editorial suggestions to address potential areas of improvement. Come sharpen your skills and break into the next level of your ability.
