Join us for a Weekend intensive to expand your writing skills in a multi-genre way!
Try writing in forms that are new to you and see how it expands your narrative and the way you approach your writing in the future.
In the style used in my Writing Our Family 6-week workshop, you will be looking at a single story from multiple angles to see what more it might have to teach you.
Starting with warm-up exercises and brief discussion you will write a single incident narrative that you have been wanting to capture in words in multiple forms (epistolary, poem, fictive story, memoir) and sharing your discoveries with the group.
This is a writing intensive about process, yet you will leave the weekend with 4 different drafts in 4 different forms, plus a deeper understanding of what it means to allow your writing to guide you, opening exciting possibilities for your practice.
Who: All levels, all genres
What to bring: A situation/story pulled from your life (family or chosen family-oriented encouraged but not required) that you’d like to write about and a spirit of experimentation!
STUDENTS LOVE KATE:
"I am writing review as recipient of a gift from my husband to participate in this course. What a lovely course I experienced with Kate Hill Cantrill. I was a newbie to a formal writing course and also busy with regular life in the meantime. Kate was gracious, passionate, and kind. She was supportive and inspiring in her guidance and feedback. I appreciated the well prepared content and writing prompts, and loved the idea that we could be honest and open about the difficult topics we approached in writing about family. I felt Kate was also particularly patient and encouraging to newcomers to the process. I would recommend her course highly, and also hope to take a future course with her when I have the time." -Richard J.
"Kate Hill Cantrill's class Writing Our Family was excellent! The group of students worked well together, Kate's comments were precise and helpful and I learned a lot. I would do it again!" -V.S.
