Join me for a writer's retreat--right here in Boston!

I'm excited to announce that I'm teaching a new writing class at the Boston Center for Adult Education.

I created the class idea around the kind of one-day class I would want to attend. We'll do lots of fun exercises, talk about the writing process, and workshop some short pieces. If you or anyone you know is in the Boston area, come join me! Here's more info:

Intensive Writers' Retreat

Have you always wanted to write, but have a hard time getting started? Or have you been writing but currently feel stuck? Or do you just want to spend a Saturday writing with others? If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, this class is for you. We will begin with writing exercises to get inspired and to learn about different aspects of the craft of writing, such as characterization, setting scenes, and plot. As a group, we will discuss the writing that comes out of the exercises. If students want, they can bring copies of a two or three page writing excerpt that they want workshopped. This class will mostly address fiction writers, but essayists, memoirists, and creative non-fiction writers are welcome to attend.

Saturday March 21 from 10 a.m.-2:30 p.m.
Saturday April 4 from 10 a.m.-2:30 p.m.
Cost is $100 ($80 for BCAE members)
