Classes

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

Close Reading Workshop: Fiction & Creative Nonfiction, Jan 30-Feb 27: Part craft discussion, part workshop, part generative space. Each week, we will close-read an essay or short story and articulate the craft elements being used (for example: POV, subject juxtaposition, braided structure, dialogue as story), and then use those elements in our own work. You will write four short works, either essays or short stories, your preference. Register here.

Freewriting Intensive, Feb 27-28: Let’s generate new work for the new year. Through intensive freewriting and class discussion, we will delve deeper and complicate our initial ideas. Like going to the gym for writers, this class is a generative space about letting go of our inner editor. Class time is organized around writing prompts which underscore certain essentials (sensory details, challenging static characters/situations, objective correlatives, incorporating environment/setting, etc).
