mother words online


Okay, so I’m finally doing it. I’m launching the online version of my Mother Words class in March. Here is the description:

Mother Words Online – March 19 – May 21

Whether you are a new mom or a veteran, whether you gave birth to or adopted your child, in this online class you’ll learn how to take birth and motherhood stories and turn them into art. Weekly lectures, reading assignments and writing exercises will focus on telling details, character development, emotional distance, strengthening your reflective voice, and revision. You can expect to generate two creative nonfiction pieces, and you will have an opportunity to revise and expand one of these into a longer piece. You will receive feedback from your peers and from me through online workshops.
