If you’re feeling overwhelmed by research, intimidated by structure and/or narrative possibilities, or otherwise stuck in pre-drafting limbo, this workshop will present you with generative prompts, examples drawn from skilled writers, and opportunities to go hands-on with your nonfiction project. There will be a mix of discussion, in-class writing, and workshops which focus primarily on the higher-order issues of drafting a longer project. Expect the practical above the lyrical, though we will make time to appreciate excellent writing.
By July 5, please send to firstname.lastname@example.org 200 words (or fewer) describing your proposed project. Stumped? Don’t quite know what you want to write? No worries. Tell me about it so I can help you.
