Sunday’s online workshops continue all summer at 4 pm. Today, take a look at the world through the eyes of this Claudia Rankine poem. Then we’ll explore second-person POV as a way to express all that people are seeing and feeling right now.
Interested in helping your students, team members, or community share their personal experiences and perspectives in a creative way? Contact me about designing a 90-min online workshop to best fit your needs.
If you or your organization have been impacted by COVID-19, I am able to offer a limited number of complimentary workshops.
First come, first serve. Please contact me to book one or if you have any questions.
We here at Newtown Literary stand against racism and injustice of any kind. We honor George Floyd and countless others who have paid the price of white supremacy with their lives, many in New York City. We acknowledge the life-and-death nature of this situation. #BlackLivesMatter is a universal truth. Black people have the same rights as everyone else, and we condemn the abhorrent act of disregarding anyone’s right to life and liberty based on the color of their skin. The rights to learn, create, and succeed in the literary community fall under this banner.
What a beautiful message to receive on my birthday. My weekly online creative writing workshops have been a bright light for me these past three months. I plan to continue hosting them every Sunday this summer.
Grateful and thrilled to be awarded a scholarship for the May cohort of the Workshop Creator program run by Wavetable!
Transitioning my work online is a need as I struggle to regain my livelihood. However, I want to design engaging and openhearted virtual workshops that help high school students tell their stories for college application essays in an authentic voice.
Personal storytelling is essential right now as a way for students to connect by sharing in each other’s experiences.
Earlier this month, I set an intention to make my “online writing workshops and private coaching sessions as open and honest as my in-person offerings.”
Transitioning my monthly class at The Astoria Bookshop to a weekly online offering added a bright light to my Sundays. I’ve loved reconnecting with regulars and meeting new writers. We even added a second session to honor my goal by keeping class sizes small.
If you would like to join us at 3 or 5 pm today (2 spots left in each class!) or be added to my newsletter to receive info on future sessions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
