There are still spaces available in my upcoming online Memoir Writing Workshop.
An online class, one that doesn’t ask you to drive or even fly somewhere, will help to integrate writing into your daily routine. After two weeks of writing regularly and discussing writing in the class, you will have developed a writing habit. You’ll be a part of a community of writers. By responding to the assigned prompts, you will stretch your creative mind and shake up your usual rhythm and subjects. In other words, you’ll create something new.
The class will run from May 17 – May 28th and the deadline to sign up is May 1st. If you are interested, please send me an email at ChloeMiller(at)gmail(dot)com. Looking forward to working together!
Here are all of the details:
Memoir Writing Workshop (Prose & Poetry)
In this workshop we will discuss the meaning of memoir, how to choose a moment in your history when your life shifted in some way and how to best present it in an essay or poem.
You will write and workshop your original work with published writing teacher Chloé Miller for two weeks. She will present writing prompts and exercises, links to short online readings and lead discussions around your work. You will receive individual feedback from her on your two longer assignments. Through group peer editing sessions, you will hone your editing abilities and receive additional feedback on your work.
Short assignments will be posted every day. Your longer assignments will be due each Friday. It is suggested that you spend 30 – 60 minutes per day on the class. No assignments will be given over the weekend, although the lively discussion and writing will continue.
All levels welcome; beginners encouraged.
The class will be held for two weeks from Monday, May 17 – Friday, May 28. Class enrollment is limited to ten adult students. It will be held in a private Google group that will be available 24/7. With a free Gmail account, you will be ready to start.
The cost is $200.00 payable by check due May 1. Chloé’s current and previous private writing students receive a 10% discount. To register, email Chloemiller(at)gmail(dot)com.
