Each workshop is comprised of five classes and ends in a group chat with other students. Each class offers the opportunity to send work to me to be critiqued. The classes are for all skill levels...except for people who already have an MFA.

In this workshop, you will learn to improve your sentences and scenes. You will produce a short writing sample by the end of the course that implements all of the lessons.

Journal Writing to Fit Your Life: $60
Most people think there's only one right way to keep a journal. Actually, there are dozens.

For the sixth class, you will do journal writing prompts with three other students and myself via Skype messaging. The classes are:
Critique of Your Work: $5 per page
Send me your double-spaced pages and I will give you a thorough critique of how all the elements are working in the piece and how to improve it. I also offer an optional Skype conference to discuss your writing face-to-face. Your work can be as short as a query letter or as long as a novel. Please no poetry, children's books, or erotica. I do not do line edits at this time.
