Beating the Summer Slump: A Nonfiction Workshop, with Meghan Flaherty, June 2 (via Zoom)

Meghan FlahertyWEDNESDAYS, JUNE 2 — JULY 7  |  Summer can be a sluggish time. Do you need deadlines? The accountability of a class? The feedback of your fellow writers? A little inspiration just to spur you on? This workshop-based class is designed for writers of any kind of nonfiction. Bring your memoir, essay, criticism, food writing, travel writing, biography—you name it!—and work on a revision or simply generate some new material in a supportive environment.

Students will focus on their own pages, writing and revising, while also supporting each other through feedback in the workshop setting.

Prompts, suggestions, and short readings for inspiration will be offered as appropriate, depending on the needs and desires of the group.

This class will be held via Zoom. Registered students, please contact the instructor directly for Zoom details.
