Emphasis determined through the contract. Two synchronous online consults are included to go through notes provided, one at the half-way point in hours and one at the end of the reading. At the end of the consult, you receive a written critique to include core themes, questions that the book considers, suggested references or additional resources, suggested presses/journals for the writer to consider submitting the work for review, and questions that remain unanswered or questions you might consider within your work.
Individual Writing Workshop
4-weeks of online prompts, close reading, and online discussion of the produced work
In this workshop format, you will share with me a 10-page sample of your work and your writing goals (experimentation in form, revision, aesthetic explorations). I will develop a study program of readings based on your interests, emphasizing writers from marginalized groups. Each week, I will share a resource packet and 2 generative writing prompts. We will meet online to workshop what you write once per week.

In this workshop format, a personalized workshop is cultivated for your school in accordance with Common Core State Standards (if needed).

All workshops include a classroom norms setting process to support the development of a brave space where we can be vulnerable with and for one another. Readings (that emphasize writers from historically marginalized groups) and generative writing prompts are included.
