Announcing Three New Workshops Including Two Quickies!

Hey Y'all,

So I've got three workshops coming up. The first two are mini-workshops-- a three-class Zine Workshop Tuesdays in December and a three-class Write to Read in Public Workshop Thursdays in December. The third workshop will be the first six-week session of 2012. I know it might seem a little early to be signing up for 2012 BUT the six-week workshops have been selling out so I want to give y'all a heads up now (plus, selfishly speaking, I like to get my calendar worked out in advance). Here are some nitty-gritty details. If you want to sign up for one or more of these, please EMAIL ME and put WORKSHOP in the subject heading. A 33% deposit holds your place in the class.


'Zine Workshop
Dates: 12/13, 12/20 & 12/27
Time: 7 - 9 pm
Cost: $75
Description: Zines-- those wonderful and amazing homemade magazines from the '80s-- are making a big comeback. Even the NYT knows-- check out this article on the topic. Or do some local investigation and head on over to DOMY Books to check out their amazing selection of locally produced zines. In this three week workshop we'll each make one (or more if you're fast) zine that addresses some passion. So maybe I'll do a knitting zine or a haiku zine or a Boston Terrier zine or a zine about how when I'm 80 I'm going to start smoking and drinking and eating fried chicken again. I'll bring some supplies-- paper, pens, glue, scissors, magazines for collages, etc. We'll also schedule two optional field trips (not held during class time) to go to Kinko's and DOMY-- so we can make copies of our zines and explore other people's zines.

Write to Read in Public Workshop
Dates: 12/8, 12/15 & 12/22
Time: 7 - 9 pm
Cost: $75
Description: At the end of our last six-week writing workshop the class did a public reading at Hyde Park Theatre. It was AWESOME. This success, combined with a request I got from past attendee LM (thanks LM!) to do a mini-workshop has led me to offer this three-week session. Each attendee will pick a theme or two on the first night and start writing in class. We'll spend the three sessions whipping one piece into shape and practice reading it out loud for maximum effect. Then we'll have a public reading. (The reading will not be held on one of the meeting nights, but shortly thereafter.)

Winter Six Week Writing Workshop
Dates: 1/5, 1/12, 1/19, 1/26, 2/2, 2/9
Time: 7 - 9 pm
Cost: $300 (ask me about a discount for returning students)
Description: We'll spend six weeks talking about all aspects of memoir/creative non-fiction from process to publication. There are weekly homework assignments, in-class writing as time allows, group feedback and one-on-one coaching via email during the course of the six weeks. See the testimonials page to find out what past attendees have to say about their experience. The six-week workshops sell out super fast so don't wait to sign up.
