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 six 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 for six sessions over the winter 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 Sundays Jan 28, Feb 4, 11, 25, Mar 3 & 10 from 2-4:30pm ET via Zoom.

***Class will not meet on Sunday, Feb 18.***
