Ongoing Writing Classes:
Drop in for a lively writing session filled with prompts to get your pen moving. No critique, just write and share (only if you want). Bring your notebook and a friend:
EVERY Monday from 5:45 to 6:45 p.m.
at my home near the University of New Mexico.
This hour-long session is designed to spark new stories and give you inspiration for works in progress. $5
If you’d like to be on the official email list, you’ll get a weekly reminder about the Drop In session, AND as a bonus, a prompt from the previous week’s session! Sign up here: http://eepurl.com/E833T
Future Writing Classes:
I companion students through 10 weeks of in- and out-of class writing exercises designed to turn the human experience of loss into a story or essay. We will also critique our in-progress work in class in a workshop format and we’ll use published essays and stories as models and inspiration, looking at specific aspects of craft including: image, characterization, plot, and building scenes with dialog, summary, and reflection.
This is not intended to be a group therapy class, but rather a supportive space to WRITE about grief, and craft those stories. Some writing experience will be helpful, but not required.
NOTE: this course was successfully taught January-March 2013.
Flash Out Loud (a DimeStories workshop)
Half day workshop to focus on crafting 3-minute stories and performing those stories in front of an audience.
Dreamboard Your Story
Sometimes as a writer you need to get out of your head and away from the computer, or even your notebook….. Using collage techniques participants will explore their stories through a new medium–designed to spark new ideas and gain insight into your story or your characters.
