“A letter. That’ll show him!”


“A letter. That’ll show him!

Jo March in Little Women

New for 2016!  Join me for my new essay workshop, online version. It’s guaranteed to stimulate and move you to a deeper level in your writing journey. And it’s perfect for people with busy schedules or more inclined to self-directed learning.

We’ll read essays by Annie Dillard, David Sedaris, Pico Iyer and Jo Ann Beard, to name a few. You’ll receive weekly writing prompts. Engage in online discussion about these. Unfurl from gentle, productive feedback on your work-in-progress. Each week we’ll focus on one of eight elements of the essay: theme, detail, scene, dialogue, language, voice, memory and pacing.

Give yourself, or someone you know, a literary gift. The cozy, warm winter version.

The fun starts the week of January 18th and goes through the week of March 9th.
