Two-Weekend Intensive: Drafting and Critiquing Long-form Nonfiction–Essays and Beyond (Denver)

$345.00 Members
$405.00 Non-members

Long-form work remains a vital genre with which writers engage their lives and curiosity, often taking on the moment and the culture. During this two-weekend intensive, writers are encouraged to bring ideas they want to explore or pieces that they’ve begun or want to polish. For the former, we’ll be aiming toward a first draft. The latter folks will be working toward crafting a publishable piece. We'll read and discuss the introduction to Phillip Lopate’s To Show and To Tell, as well as dive into a quartet of long-form pieces with the question of “how the heck did they do that?” foremost in our minds. There will be engaged consideration of the handouts and opportunities to workshop pieces with in-class feedback from your cohort and written feedback from the instructor. Intended for intermediate and advanced students.
