Editing for Writers

Whether penning the Next Great American Novel (poetry collection, or memoir), or preparing a writing sample for a fellowship, grant, or MFA application, you will gain insightful feedback workshopping new or existing projects. Each class will provide you the opportunity to receive and provide personalized critique with an eye towards revision. Weekly readings will consist of students' work, supplemented by essays on craft and excerpts from Kamau Brathwaite, Sloane Crosley, Joan Didion, Maggie Nelson, and Rebecca Solnit, among others.
