All workshops in Spring 2021 will be offered online. On the day of the workshop, all registered students will receive an email from the workshop facilitators with information about how to join and participate in the online workshop.
Plan to arrive to your workshop 10 minutes early. If you would like to register for a workshop and must miss part of it, please email us prior to registering. Workshops are designed to last for the time specified on their description page, and missing part of a class means that you are missing important material.
If you’ve looked through our workshop offerings and haven’t found the workshop that you believe will fit your needs, we’d like to hear from you. We are constantly refining and expanding our workshop offerings and would like to know if there’s a writing topic that we should be addressing.
