This February-March, we're delighted to offer weekend workshops, one-days workshops, and, new this season, a weekday workshop held throughout the month of February! We will be adding even more wonderful opportunities for April and May, a season designed to take you from the fundamentals all the way through to mastering the art of revision. Whether you're the most avid of novelists or you're a writer who simply scrawls daydreams, join us for a weekend to learn, devote yourself to the creative process, and take your work to the next level.
