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 few submittable stories. These are cross platform, done via Facebook and Discord, featuring video lectures and critiques. Students in these workshops have gone on to produce many books, stories and more.
Donations can be made to give out free slots to POC and LGBTQIA authors. I will match up to 2 of these donations for novella workshops or up to 5 for short story workshops
Short Story Workshop early registration 40 dollars (until June 8th) 50 dollars after June 8th, 5 slots left
Join me for four exercises each generating a piece of short fiction. There is a recorded lecture each week.Each week we will explore a trope, archetype or technique. (For example, Pathetic Fallacy or Unreliable Narrators.) These will lead to pieces of up to 3000 words
Novella Workshop (August 8th, open, 7 slots available) $80 until July 1st/ 100 after
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. I will be working on a book of my own start to finish as we do this, so we can explore this process together.
