So proud of these latest “grads” of the Life Into Literature class–five fierce writers who brought an incredible range of experience to the table, read deeply, wrote fearlessly, and did great work in our class. Thank you, Elizabeth, Doug, Amy, Anna, and Darlene for a rich six weeks together. I’m thrilled that you’re leaving the class with strong momentum in your writing.

Currently at Yuba Writers Workshops, I’m working with another delightful group in the Learning From the Masters Generative Workshop. Meanwhile, Build Your Personal Writing Habit launches very soon, and the class has one spot left. Full information is below. Email rachel.howard@gmail.com if you’re interested in snagging that last spot.

Build Your Personal Writing Habit

**One Spot Left**

Six Fridays, 10 a.m.-noon, plus daily writing prompts via email. April 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th, and May 4th and 11th.

Write every day, with feedback and support all along the way. Each student in this class (limited to eight) will receive a carefully selected emailed writing prompt every morning, then send the results to the instructor for immediate feedback. On Friday mornings, we’ll gather for each writer to share her favorite results of the week and receive deeper group response. This is the perfect class to wake up your writing muscles, discover how good writing a little bit every day can feel, and explore your natural writing strengths. You’ll end it with a personal writing practice that goes beyond “morning pages” and teaches you new skills while keeping your imagination uninhibited.

Course fee: $350

To register, email Rachel at Rachel.howard@gmail.com Class strictly limited to eight participants.
