Nonfiction Writing Group
with Neil Chethik, Carnegie Center Executive Director
Tuesdays, June 11-August 6 (no class July 23)
Join a lively, diverse group of people in exploring nonfiction writing, including personal essays, columns, magazine pieces, and autobiography. This is a chance to limber up as a writer, get feedback from others, and gain confidence in an affirming atmosphere.
Writing Habit 2.0: Online
with Randi Ewing
Monday, July 8-Friday, August 16
Participants work on their own time (asynchronous class)
This class will take fledgling writing habits (formed on one’s own or in The Writing Habit) and focus that daily practice on one or two pieces over the course of six weeks. This class offers daily writing accountability, the chance to share work with the class for feedback, and writing prompts to help move your work along. Prompts will be primarily fiction-based, but writers of any genre are welcome to join and adapt those prompts to their needs.
We will also have ongoing forum discussions about story and character development, how to see a piece to its rightful conclusion, and useful tools for doing so. This class is ideal for writers who have incorporated writing into their daily lives but still crave a little structure and focus. Repeats welcome. Limit: 15 participants. Online class information will be emailed prior to start of class.
“Classes offered by the Carnegie Center have been the making of me as a poet. Beginning with a workshop with Tony Crunk, proceeding through a Master Class with James Baker Hall, out of which grew the Mosaic women’s poetry group, and culminating in a long series of advanced workshops with Leatha Kendrick, I have received the most valuable training of my career. All very reasonably priced.” --- Sherry Chandler
