Finish the Thing!

Weekend July 20 to July 21 2019

So you have your favorite story, poem, limerick, song, theater piece, and you keep getting close—so close—to completing it. Then the dog gets the measles, you worry that your mom will read it, you get divorced, married, a new job, you take up fantasy football or water polo, you give up smoking, you try to live without the internet and everything grinds to a halt. You never finish the thing. I will throw my not inconsiderable psychic bulk and creative moxie into helping you FINISH THE THING. We will do it. We really will.


In this workshop we will generate new writing through guided exercises and prompts; provide feedback on writing you bring from home or produce in our weekend.
