Every other month, we offer Friday-thru-Sunday weekend intensives in Downtown LA. It's an opportunity to explore your work in an intimate, focused environment, with a cohort committed to constructive and generous collaboration.
We meet for a light meal on Friday evening, and learn and practice the rhythm of response we'll use to one another's work over the course of the next two days.
After a light breakfast, Saturday is a full day of reading, response, and writing, with plenty of breaks for a walk or a stretch. When we break to write, you can stay in the workshop space, or take advantage of tables on the rooftop, in local cafes, or in the sanctuary of the community garden around the corner.
Saturday evening, we'll make dinner together.
Sunday is more of the same, with the option of inviting a small group of friends and family to join us for a read and a nosh, mid-afternoon.
The weekend intensive is an ideal way for writers living outside of LA to get the benefit of the in-person group process. If we're working virtually one-to-one, it's a great way for me to get a strong sense of who you are and what you're up to, that will deepen the work we do online.
In any case, it's a great way to quickly get the benefit of this work, first-hand, and to get a sense whether the ongoing workshop might be a good fit for you, creatively.
If you're coming from out-of-town, we can help you to find reasonable accommodations close by, if you need them.
