Spring Workshop at Politics and Prose Bookstore Open for Registration

I’m excited to announce that my spring 2017 writing workshop at Politics and Prose bookstore, Washington, D.C., is open for registration. You’ll find a link to the full description below. Don’t hesitate to email me with any questions. Do register with the bookstore as soon as you can, as classes tend to fill up quickly.

If you’ve taken my memoir writing workshop before fall 2016, you’ll notice that I’ve restructured the class. Following student recommendations, it will be five weeks long and we will be workshopping student writing as a large group (rather than a four week class in which we split into small groups for workshopping.)

Are you looking for customized help on a particular project? I have a few spots open for new clients this winter starting on Jan. 23. I can read your work, offer feedback, give reading & writing suggestions and meet with you at a convenient time. Email me to schedule our first session together (chloemiller(at)gmail(dot)com).

Here’s to a generative and productive new year!

Happy (Literary) Holidays!

The Zoo Lights Mark the Holidays Annually in D.C.

As you purchase gifts this season, consider a giving a literary magazine subscription or donating money to an organization that supports writers in someone's name. Don't forget to buy books for your loved ones at your favorite independent bookstore. Support journalism with a subscription, print or electronic, to a newspaper.

If someone you know is looking to work with a writing coach, contact me (chloemiller(at)gmail(dot)com) to arrange a Writing Coach Gift Certificate (which can be used in person or via video conference.)

And don't forget to give yourself a break this holiday season. If you're like me, you have a dangerously tall pile of books on your nightstand. Take some time to read, take notes in the margin and think outside of the usual rush of people and sweets. Find that journal that burrowed itself under a pile of time-sensitive papers and start drafting again. 2017 will thank you.
