Writing Workshops Los Angeles Presents

Spring/Summer 2010 Creative Nonfiction Workshop: Memoir and Personal Essay

Tuesdays, 7:30 to 9:30 pm
June 1, 2010 to July 20, 2010 (8 meetings)

In this mixed-level course, we will read and discuss published narrative nonfiction as a means to investigate questions of truth and storytelling, and where the two intersect. There will be in-class exercises that address specific craft issues such as scene and voice, among others, and every student will have the opportunity to workshop at least one piece of nonfiction writing in a serious environment meant to challenge and inspire each member of the class.

This course will take place in the instructor’s home in Echo Park, where beer, wine and sparkling water—and the occasional delicious snack—will be served.

Enrollment limit: 8 students
Course fee: $360 (Payment plans available!)

Professional organizer, blogger, and Echo Park resident Beth Zeigler is leading two workshops on Friday to help you get organized. Beth (whose company is called Bneato) will organize your home or office or teach you how to do so. If you don’t have the time or funds for one on one counseling than you are in luck. She leads classes to get you started on your journey to a clear desk.
