Take a Writing Class with Hannah at Hedgebrook Nov. 18-25, 2019

Hannah Tinti: Next Level Writing
November 18-25, 2019
DEADLINE TO APPLY: Sept. 26, 2019

CLASS DESCRIPTION:

The solution to a piece of writing is always hidden just beneath the surface. In this editorial-focused workshop, we will dig deep, giving close reads to a piece of your writing (10-25 pages, max 6,000 words) and exploring each layer, from the seed of the idea that first inspired you to the places where you’re feeling lost or stuck. Together we’ll identify the strengths and weaknesses, shore up the structure, identify patterns and find ways to bring your work to the next level. We’ll also stretch and find new skills through craft lectures and writing exercises that will stretch your imagination and foster your creativity, using the unique setting to inspire us. This class will be limited to 6 people and will also include one-on-one sessions. My goal is for each student to leave re-energized, with a host of new ideas and pages, as well as a concrete plan to re-approach their work. The focus will be fiction, both long and short form, though non-fiction/memoir writers are also welcome.
