Classes

Through the Visual Arts Center of Richmond, I’m teaching **online** classes — open to writers everywhere!

Together Apart: Building Community Right Now, March 29, 6-8PM: Right now it seems like everything is on hold, but in many ways we have more accessibility than ever before. Learn how to create writing community, find and assess writing opportunities, and foster a sense of stability and belonging during this uncertain time. We’ll cover several subjects in two hours, with an exhaustive resource list provided to students at the end. Register here.

Generative Short Story Workshop, May 17-21, 12-1PM: Write a short story in five days! Join me for a lunchtime class organized around generative writing prompts meant to assist you in pushing through the uncertainty of that rough first draft. We’ll meet each day from 12-1 p.m., go over a helpful craft prompt, and write together. As the week progresses, we’ll assess our work and take stock of next steps. Register here.

Revision Intensive: Short Fiction, June 5-6, 10AM-12:30PM: Have a story that needs work but you don’t know where to start? Nothing we write can stand on its own without some phase of revision. In this two-day short fiction intensive, students explore different methods for revision, plus come away with resources and actionable steps for how to address revision in their own work.
