FUTURE WORKSHOPS

A Journaling Workshop

In this 5 week workshop we will keep (and share) a daily journal.  We will study the composition of the entry and its worth, the strangeness and beauty of raw material, and the relationship between confession and invention.  To keep us company we will read Audre Lorde’s The Cancer Journals, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath, Bernadette Mayer's Midwinter Day, and The Diaries of Franz Kafka. 

All books are available at AVID BOOKSHOP

Each week participants will bring in 5-7 entries to share.   

Note: entries can be fiction, dream, grocery lists, notes towards a novel, letters to nobody, a list of current events, sobbings, pieces of poems, or chicken scratch.  Which is to say, this workshop is (as always) a multi-genre workshop.  All forms are welcome (poetry, prose, hybrid, memoir, essay, flash, fragment, and everything in between).  

Wednesdays/ October 11, 18, 25 / November 1, 8 / 9:45-12:45  

Weekly reading and writing assignments will guide you.  All levels welcome.

The workshop is $315,  FULL payment is required to hold your spot.  Register HERE and reserve your space right away.

PRESENT WORKSHOPS

Writing & Failure: on disappointments, shame, being lost, and miracles

In this workshop we will ruin everything.  We will fall down the well, eat the poisonous berries, and take unforgivable risks.  We will say things we never meant to say, destroy the livingroom, write the worst thing, break all the glass, and then pray for a miracle.  

This workshop is a multi-genre workshop.  All forms are welcome (poetry, prose, hybrid, memoir, essay, flash, and fragment).  

Sundays / September 3, 10, 17, 24 October 1 / 9:45-12:45
