Hey everyone, I’m pleased to announce a new series of day-long workshops on the writing craft that I’ll be conducting at Grub Street in Boston. (Some of these courses have grown out of workshops I’ve offered before at various WCSU residencies.) If you’re not familiar with Grub Street and you live anywhere in a 100 mile radius, you really ought to check it out. My experiences there have been overwhelmingly positive. It’s a magnet for blazingly creative people following all kinds of interesting paths in writing, and their classes are top-notch in terms of providing inspiration and the ongoing work every writer must do in honing the craft.
