Spring Writers Residency

This MFA-style workshop, designed for writers with works already in progress, draws participants through a series of intensive exercises, readings, and submissions of their own writing, toward a goal of improving and completing projects in various genres. Residents will be responsible for providing feedback to one another and participating in conversations about craft, style, form, function, and creative choices that deepen or texturize writing. Each resident will have the opportunity to submit two writing samples, which will be analyzed alongside mentor and master texts, to help each writer better understand their own strengths and points for future development.

When: Thursdays, March 4 – May 13, 6:00pm – 9:00pm

Where: On Zoom

Cost: $300

Discovering Your Creative Project

This weekly course will take an intensive look at how writers produce work, through a variety of states: conception, drafting, revision, and preparing for publication. We will focus on ways to push past writers’ block through creative risk-taking and use of emulative craft models. This is the ideal setting for writers who have an idea for a project but haven’t gotten started yet, as well as for writers who feel they have “too many ideas” who would like to explore how to choose and develop them into longer pieces.

When: Wednesdays, March 3 – May 12, 6:00pm – 9:00pm

Where: On Zoom

Cost: $300

Both programs award CTLE credit for participants.
