"If you’re craving some constructive, insightful feedback from a supportive group of fellow writers, it’s time to dip your toe into the workshop," says instructor Steve Mitchel.

Over the course of five weeks, the group will discuss two or three of your drafts (all stages of development are welcome) with an eye toward discovering what resonates. Which characters, scenes and sentences are most engaging? Which ones most effectively advance your narrative and which seem to be at cross purposes with the process of bringing your story to fruition?

In addition to the group’s comments, Steve will provide you with written feedback and reading suggestions. “While the workshop will primarily focus on student work,” says Steve, “in each session we’ll also examine short excerpts from published stories to illustrate various approaches to craft.”

Whether you’re struggling to complete your first full draft or gearing up to submit to literary journals or MFA programs, the inspiration and direction you gain from the workshop experience will leave you eager to dive back into your stories.

  • Steve was terrific: gracious, insightful and balanced. I enjoyed reading stories closely for their literary merit and found the open, forgiving atmosphere encouraging.
