THE WRITING ROOM
There’s a reason why writers gravitate to cafes and libraries, where it can help just to be surrounded by others doing the same thing. The challenge of persevering through the long and lonely process of writing a full-length work can be daunting. The Writing Room is here to help. Whether you’re putting off starting a novel, memoir or narrative non-fiction; slogging through the middle of one; or slaving over the zillionth draft, this class aims to help you do the one thing that can’t be avoided in order to reach the end: sitting down to write. Class members must bring a laptop to every session — or pen and paper, if preferred. Students will spend the bulk of each session working on his or her project. We will NOT distribute pages to other class members or spend time critiquing projects as a group. Instead, only the instructor will read works in progress. Over the course of the semester, she will discuss work with individual class members, who will each receive at least two one-on-one conferences. Time will also be reserved during every session to talk about developing editing skills and weathering the revision process. Writing prompts will be given to those who are blocked or stuck. Come prepared to write – even if you don’t feel like it!
