Private Writing and Critiquing Group: New Session Starts in February!

I teach classes for Gotham Writers Workshops, and also offer more specialized, private “Living Room Classes” for select students — with a new session starting Feb. 4. These sessions offer an intimate but structured environment where the writer receives expert input and ongoing dialog with fellow writers. This supportive setting is for writers who enjoy working independently, but also appreciate structured critiques and group support.

A new advanced nonfiction workshop will begin in February, meeting on Monday evenings from 7-9 p.m., for six weeks, in New York City’s East Village area. Each meeting will include two parts:

1. Teacher and group feedback on in-progress works of non-fiction. These can be any kind of non-fictional work: essay, article, blog post, travel piece, memoir, or a portion (say, a short chapter) of a book-length piece. Anything under 2,000 words. The Critique Sessions provide a safe environment, encouraging each writer to get to the constructive feedback critical to improvement.

2. An open pitching session, wherein students can pitch their non-fiction ideas to the class (any of the above types of pieces) for discussion, refinement, collaboration, and brainstorming of possible publication outlets.

Classes begin Feb. 4. Space is VERY limited to ensure students get the proper amount of attention. Register before Jan. 15 for a discounted price of $450. For more information or to register, email me: JMKArmstrong [at] gmail [dot] com
