This Fall at The Writer's Center

Just a quick note to let you know that I'll be leading three workshops at The Writer's Center this fall:

The Art of Revision - 4 Tuesdays, Bethesda - 9/13/2011-10/4/2011

Poets often have folders full of poem drafts they’ve abandoned because, while they believe the draft has promise, they can’t seem to figure out how to move the draft in the right direction. In this workshop, we will explore ways to “rethink” stubborn drafts in order to breathe new life into them and ultimately—as Samuel Taylor Coleridge said—put “the best words in the best order.” click here for more info

Online Poetry Workshop - 8 Mondays, Online - 9/19/2011-11/7/2011

Don’t just sit around waiting for the muse. For eight weeks, this workshop will provide inspiration for generating new poems as well as ideas for resuscitating and refreshing old drafts. New “lessons” will be posted weekly, featuring example poems and links to additional reading. Participants will share and comment on each other’s work and will receive individual feedback from the workshop leader. click here for more info

How to Make a Living as a Copy Editor - 1 Saturday, Bethesda - 10/15/2011

Whether you are drawn to the corporate world or a freelancer’s life, this workshop will cover what you need to know to pursue a career as a copy editor. You will learn how a copy editor differs from a proofreader, how to build experience now to make a career switch later, key tips every copy editor should know, and the steps you’ll need to take if you want to work on a freelance basis. click here for more info
