This is not a traditional writers' workshop. Student work will be used for positive examples of writing only. The focus will not be on fixing work, but rather on helping students develop a fuller practice as writers.

Each Saturday session runs from 9:30am-3pm, at my home in Mt. Washington, just north of DTLA, east of Silver Lake, and near the Metro Gold Line. Classes will include discussion, exercise, and lecture. We will take a short working break for lunch.

These classes are appropriate for writers of fiction, though creative non-fiction writers may also find them of use. When you register, I will send links of readings to prepare for the day. You will also be asked to email some of your writing, though if you don't have any, that's OK.

Feel free to email or call me with any questions, no matter how small: 323-225-5633.
