Advanced Prose Workshop

Our signature creative writing workshop will focus on editing and revising your in-progress work and offer exercises to keep you in flow. We’ll gather in person at our new location at the Harvey Milk Center for the Arts in San Francisco to talk about narrative concepts, examine each other’s work, share ideas and edits, challenge each other, and cheer each other on. We’ll post revisions, edits and readings once a week online and/or bring them to class.

This is a supportive, yet challenging environment for writers of short stories, novels, creative nonfiction, or memoir. Join us and you’ll be rolling up your sleeves and getting to work from the first class, revising pieces you have already started to write as well as writing new scenes, bringing your narrative to life. Take this class if you have already found the project you want to work on and need the structure of a workshop to see you through drafting, editing, and development.
