I’m pleased to announce that as of the first week in October, I’ll be joining the faculty at Writers Studio Tucson as a teacher on the Intermediate Level.
I’ve worked my way up through the program, and the Writers Studio method has done a lot for me, encouraging me to stretch my writing muscles and attempt techniques I otherwise would have never have dreamed of using. (And it has helped me get a few things published.)
Want to try the program? Take one of our upcoming Tucson Workshop classes, available on Wed and Thursday nights, and on Saturday mornings. I know the teachers and they are all great.
If you ever hear yourself saying, “I would like to write more, but don’t know what to write about,” you’ll find yourself reassured by the variety of stimulating exercises to jump start your creativity. They’ll prompt you to unleash strong new voices that have been simmering inside you for too long.
“Every week, I presented a new story. Finally something did click, the very thing that’s their specialty at The Writers Studio, emotional content. Before, my work was dead. When I brought in my breakthrough story, I felt I was carrying a weird animal in my bag. It was the first story I sold.”
-JENNIFER EGAN, former student at The Writers Studio, winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for(Alfred A. Knopf, 2010)
You’ll receive friendly, constructive feedback from your teacher and fellow students, never with the intent to tear each other down, always with an emphasis to strengthening our use of writerly techniques to make our writing really sing.
Classes are also available in New York, San Francisco and Amsterdam …. and if you’re not in one of those places, there are online classes as well.
It’s a great program, so try it!
