WORKSHOPS, PRIVATE STUDENTS, CRITIQUE & EDITING SERVICES
At the links to the left, you'll find a list of upcoming workshops with links for more information and registration. This page will be updated regularly, and more are booked. If you want to book me for a workshop, either check the Workshop list here, or, if you want me to create a workshop specifically for your group, contact here and put "Workshop" in the subject line.
Note: All slots must be booked in advance, with a non-refundable deposit upon acceptance. If you pull out of the slot, you will not get a refund. If you wait until the last minute to book your slot, it may not be available.
Rates will go up as of Jan. 1, 2014. Anything booked prior to that, with a deposit, will be honored at 2013 rates. Anything booked after Jan. 1 will be at the new rate.
Workshops are for Intermediate and Advanced Students, serious about their writing and building their craft, unless otherwise noted. All students are expected to have a solid foundation in grammar, spelling, punctuation, structure, knowledge of comma placement, ability to discern between possessives and plurals, and homonyms. Most classes are writing-intensive. Students are expected to write every day, turn in work by deadline, and fulfill the class expectations.
A limited number of private students are accepted for one-on-one mentoring on a rotating basis. 3-month, 6-month, and year-long students are accepted, for intermediate and advanced writers with the same criteria as in the note above. Students must go through a vigorous screening and application process (including a grammar and structure test), are expected to write every day and fulfill the agreed-upon commitment. Students who do not maintain their commitment will be dropped, without a refund. For more information, prices, and application, email here, with "Private Student" in the subject line.
