Workshops

In addition to editing, I teach quarterly writing workshops, usually focused on horror and Bizarro writing. Learning as a group, you generate either four short pieces or a novella.

 

Short Story Workshop (September,  filled but  9 slots donated for LGBTQIA or POC authors)

In the short story workshop, students do various exercises to stimulate creativity and loosen up and then work to create four pieces of short fiction while we look at and various markets to submit to.

3 donated slots are available for POC and LGBTQIA authors in need. Contact me if you are such an author and want in. No questions asked. I have worked with many diverse authors and seen the difficulties they have had in genre fiction.

 

Horror (40 until September 1st, then 50, 9 slots available, 2 donated slots available)

Learn to use horror tropes to tell new and strange stories. Each week we examine a different trope and use it to do something fresh and creepy.  We will discuss the genre in weekly lectures, paired with a story demonstrating the trope.

 

Novella Workshop (November, open, 9 slots available)

$100 per slot ($80 early enrollment until December 1st). Write a book from pitch to completion. I monitor your work day by day as the group critiques you. You may not finish but at the end you will have a premise, you will have a trajectory and you will have substantial critiques. Some of these books have gone on to see print or have been selected for the New Bizarro Author Series. Loosen up your ideas and get something out there. These are done via Facebook group as it is quick and efficient means of sharing information and interacting. 9 slots left.
