Course Description:

Join us for four intimate sessions as we meet to reveal our written works in progress. Captive listening is at the heart of our meetings as we listen without judgements, suggestions or opinions. We value working to deadlines and having our edited work available to read each week. We’ll keep the group size small so that each writer has ample time to read and reflect. We're excited to offer this experimental format to support the practice of deep listening and to help you gain a clearer understanding of your own work by reading aloud to other writers.


Tuition: $40.00

Additional Fees: $0.00
