Writing a large project, be it fiction, memoir, essay or poetry collection, takes much more than knowledge of craft. No matter where you are in the writing, these projects require community to motivate, support and discuss the time-intensive realities of tackling a full-length book. These three workshop circles will provide that community along with some real talk about commitment, discipline, and finishing.

This is a circle of support rather than a class on specific craft elements (such as pacing). Using the safe and gentle practices of Women Writing for (a) Change in a virtual setting, we will gather once a month over the summer to check in with each other as to how our work is going, both the highs and the lows. The circles will provide space to discuss goals, narrative problems, share new work, and strengthen our sense of accountability to ourselves.

Classes meet June 26, July 24 & August 21, 1-4pm ET via Zoom

Included: Each participant will receive a one-hour private session with the facilitator to discuss individual projects.

**Please note that this class will be held via Zoom online conferencing. Your facilitator will provide specific details regarding this online community prior to the start of class.**
