I have missed the Bay Area during this busy foothills summer! Fortunately, I’ll be coming down this fall to teach two special Saturday classes at the San Francisco Writers’ Grotto.
First up: Three-D Writing: How to Go from “Flat” to “Wow,” Saturday, September 29th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. This is a stimulating, somewhat mind-bendy class that will give newer writers useful concepts and experienced writers ideas for shaking up habits and trying radical new angles. Several in-class exercises in this one, and a big handout of material for further thinking. Click here for full info.
Then: Give Your Memoir a Narrative Engine, Saturday, November 17th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Bring your memoir draft’s opening to this one for on-the-spot troubleshooting in a supportive environment. Click here for full info.
I’m thrilled that I’m joining the teaching staff of Stanford Continuing Studies’ online Writing Certificate program this fall, teaching Form and Theory of the Novel. The only downside is that I won’t have enough time for teaching September and October classes at my Grass Valley studio, Yuba Writers Workshops. However, in November, I will be teaching in Grass Valley:
Life Into Literature: Explorations in Memoir
This supportive and generative intro-level personal writing class will take place eight Monday nights, 6:30-9 p.m., November 5th through 17th. Click here for more info.
The Grass Valley class is strictly limited to six students, so early registration is recommended. If you’d like to know more about any of these classes, email me at rachel dot howard at gmail, or leave a comment!
