Adapting Your Writing Routine

Loading Events

The global pandemic has completely altered the way businesses and individuals work, and this includes writers. Many find themselves with small pockets of time to write, in place of longer stretches to which they were previously accustomed. Through both exercises and strategizing (and a bit of cheerleading), this class will guide participants in working toward seeing through projects—be they short stories or book-length undertakings—in small, punctuated time segments. Writing prompts and personalized assignments will be aimed toward jumpstarting or energizing individual projects and goals. Note: No meeting on November 3.

LIVE VIDEO CONFERENCE: This workshop will be held via our online video conferencing platform, Zoom. The dates and times will remain the same. You can view brief tutorials on using the platform here. Shortly before the start date participants will recieve an email with login info. Please check your spam if you don’t see it.

Alicia Oltuski’s work has appeared on NPR’s Berlin Stories, Tin House, Glimmer Train, W magazine, and other publications. She has been included in the Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers series and received a David Berg Foundation Fellowship at Columbia University, where she received an M.F.A. in Creative Writing.

Teaching Style: Alicia aims to provide students with a concrete set of tools that can be utilized toward specific goals, and also prove useful for future projects. She emphasizes drawing on a student's innate or previously developed strong suits to form an individualized approach to projects, and to tackling any areas that need work. She caters her comments and lesson plans to the specific needs of student projects; therefore, no two classes are the same.
