Advanced Fiction/Nonfiction Workshop (Online course. Cancelled!)

April 14 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm

Instructor: Jay Kauffmann
$189 Members | $210 Nonmembers
Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4/14/20 – 6/4/20 | 6:00 PM – 7:15 PM

The goal of this Advanced Fiction and Creative Nonfiction workshop is to push you to a new level of professionalism and take you from a first draft to a submission-ready final draft. The workshop will be about quality, not quantity, as we adopt a more tough-minded, detailed approach. Since everyone is expected to have a certain level of experience, we will focus less on fundamentals and more on fine-tuning—from sentence level to overall structure. But perhaps the most crucial element of this workshop will be the emphasis on confronting some poignant, central theme in your life as an artist. The point of this course is not simply to be proficient but to produce something genuine and important. Students need to have previously taken at least two writing workshops.

About the Instructor: Jay Kauffmann’s fiction and nonfiction have appeared in numerous publications and anthologies here and abroad. Winner of the Andrew Grossbardt Memorial Prize and nominated for the Pushcart Prize and Best New American Voices, he has taught at Randolph College, Vermont College, University of Virginia, and Miller School.

THIS CLASS HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
