In this six-week course, Callie Feyen and Jennifer Batchelor will dive into the deep end of the storytelling pool with lessons designed to elevate your writing and strengthen your voice. This course will be an “advanced” level in both content and pacing—participants should be veteran writers who can prioritize their participation in the workshop for the duration.

Participants are highly encouraged to bring one polished draft of an essay to the start of the workshop, plus an additional essay may be developed and edited during the course for a total of two final draft essays at the end of the six weeks. You will receive edits and feedback from both instructors.

Each instructor will host one “ask me anything”-style Zoom call and a Slack channel will be used for group communication during the course of the workshop.

Week 1: Identifying Strengths and Weaknesses
Week 2: Developing Character in Creative Nonfiction
Week 3: Choosing Details That Matter
