Whether you’re interested in writing fiction, perfecting your point-of-view for cultural criticism or expanding your understanding and love of poetry, the virtual writing workshops hosted by Cherry Street Pier resident artists Blue Stoop offers workshops for every writer.
Learn best practices from talented writers in an eight-week Zoom course launching in September. Registration is open through August 24.
Fiction writing is both craft and art. In this course, students will examine five foundations of fiction: narrative structure, character, voice, place, and dialogue. Follow Feldman on Instagram @stephanie.feldman and Twitter @sbfeldman.
Foundations of Cultural Essay Writing with Tre Johnson (Tuesdays)
Students will read cultural essays from a variety of backgrounds, topics, and lifestyles to explore how to further (or begin!) your skill in cultural critiques, observations, and storytelling. Follow Johnson on social media @tre_john_son.
Foundations of Poetry Writing with Noor Ibn Najam (Wednesdays)
Writing poetry changes a poet, every time, in ways that can be inexplicable and resistant to explanation. In this discussion-based, generative workshop, we will collaborate to grow our understanding of the craft of poetry. Follow Najam on Instagram at @spike_sappho.
Each course is 8 weeks, starting September 14 and September 16. All classes will be held through Zoom. The cost is $400 per workshop. Registration closes August 24. Sign up today!
