Summer Writing Courses

Summer Writing 

These weeklong courses encourage young writers to unleash their creativity in the genre of their choice.  

·      Each day, we will focus on a specific tool of successful creative writing: observation, language, voice, scene, and character.
·      The workshop is student-driven.  Participants will choose their own focus genre: fiction, nonfiction, or poetry.
·      Every class will feature in-class writing exercises, as well as reading aloud, and constructive workshopping.
·      With a maximum of six participants, students will receive plenty of personal feedback, as well as two personal conferences with me.
·      Students will complete at least one developed, polished piece by the end of the week.
·      Workshops will take place in my home in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn.  I’ll provide snack, as well as one field trip to write “on the scene” in the Botanic Gardens.
·      We will finish the course with a reading at a local coffee shop!

Dates are flexible!  Sessions will run weekly through late June and July, 9:30-12:30, or 1:30-4:30.  Students can sign up for one or both day sessions.  Please contact me to discuss dates.  $200 per student.

As always, I am available all summer for tutoring, remediation, and school change help.  Look for my College Essay Workshop coming soon!
