As we're winding down this chaotic year, I can promise you that 2021 is already more organized and steady with what I'll be able to offer in terms of classes:
If you'd like to work with me, or you've worked with me in the past and want to work with me again, here are some opportunities we can meet!
BID BY DECEMBER 10, 2020
- 1-year timeframe, Virtual Short Story or Essay Consultation
-As part of Kearny Street Workshop's annual fundraiser, I'm offering a virtual short story or essay consultation in their silent auction. You will receive line comments and edits to 7,000 words of a short piece of prose, a three-page letter of detailed feedback, and a one-hour virtual conversation where you can ask questions and solicit advice from me. Past students of mine have been published in The New York Times' Tiny Love Stories column, The Rumpus, Joyland, The Fairytale Review, Writer's Digest, and many other journals, as well as completing manuscripts for publication, going onto to attend MFA programs and writing residences across the country.
