In this workshop, writers Amy Silverman and Deborah Sussman offer tips and tricks to get you started on a summer writing project. From prompts designed to get you writing in class to a brainstorming discussion that helps you figure out your next steps (start a blog? submit a story for publication? write a book proposal? make a goal to journal? create a writing group?) and several opportunities to workshop essays, this class helps you figure out your next step.

FOUR WORKSHOPS

  • 6:30-8:30pm Thursdays, May 16, 23, and 30
  • 6:30-8:30pm Thursday, June 6
