If you are accustomed to traditional workshop "critique," be prepared to experience something different: you’ll practice revising “upside-down,” learning to ask questions of your own work and the work of your colleagues rather than making pronouncements about how each writer should revise. In this workshop, you'll earn to use the most powerful tool in revision: the question.
For those who would like to write to an assignment, I will assign short pieces each week; however, each writer has the option to continue work on a project of her own devising regardless of any assignment. I encourage all writers to explore the edges of their genre: for poets, by stepping out to the margins of their page; for short-short prose writers, by paying special attention to sound.
At the end of 8 weeks, we’ll invite friends & colleagues to join us in a public reading.
