Come spend the weekend in a supportive and structured personal essay writing workshop. This class, which will meet Friday 7-9pm and Saturday 10-4pm, is perfect for those who can’t commit to a 6 or 8-week class but would like to re-commit to their writing practice. Using prompts and reading from other well-known essayists, we will learn to build and refine our own personal essays. This workshop will give each writer the opportunity to create new work, collaborate and experiment in a supportive environment and connect with a local writing community. This is a nonfiction workshop but it is open to writers of all genres. Limit: 10 students. Please bring a journal and your favorite writing utensil and be prepared to write in class.
Leader: Allison Kirkland earned her MFA in Creative Nonfiction from The New School and teaches creative writing to adults in non-traditional spaces all over the triangle. Learn more at allisonkirkland.com.
Cost: $140
