New Classes, Online and In-Person

Two online courses and one in-person course coming up in July:

Online: Daily fiction exercises 

For writers with a specific project in mind. These exercises will help you dig deeper into it. They'll be low-pressure, short, and fun. This is a place to experiment and be messy.

I'll read and comment on each, and you will be partnered with a different participant each day to offer brief commentary too. 

July 10 to 14, and July 17 to 21. $55/week. 
Take one week or both. 

AND

Online: Writing for non-writers

This is for those of you who THINK you aren't writers. By the end of the week, you'll know you are! :) 

Daily short, low-pressure exercises. I'll comment on each with encouraging feedback. I'll also send optional readings and inspirational quotes to remind you you're not alone on this journey. 

July 10 through 14. $55. 


Registration is now open for Session IV of Year of Your Book at The Hudson Valley Writers' Center in Sleepy Hollow.

A novel-writing course in six-week sessions. Our focus for this session will be the scene: how it's constructed, how it's put together with other scenes to make a narrative. Newcomers welcome!  
     July 12 through August 16, Wednesdays 10:15 to 12:15. $320.
