Literary Arts Class: Starting the Story (4 weeks) VIRTUAL

This 4 -week virtual short fiction workshop will focus on generating new work and simply getting words down on a page.  We will read excerpts, share just-written work aloud, and sometimes discuss assigned weekly readings together. We will investigate ways to unearth material together and share strategies for maintaining a regular writing practice. Participants will leave will many fragments and several starts for new work.

Literary Arts wants their classes to be accessible to everyone, regardless of income and background. They understand that their tuition structure can present obstacles for some people. The Access Program offers class registrations at a reduced rate. The access program for writing classes covers 60% of the class tuition. Most writing classes have at least one access spot available.

Emerging Writers Network

Got the best valentine this year:

Dan Wickett, co-founder of Dzanc Books, featured the story “Sure Footing” from PEOPLE LIKE YOU on his long-standing Emerging Writers Network site as a Work of the Day.

For those of you who might not know, Dan Wickett has spent years bringing attention to emerging writers in literature and their books. He is a truly legendary figure among writers.

I’m honored he included a story from the collection on his site.

Thanks so much, Dan.
