Making Memories: Infuse Your Fiction and Nonfiction with Context
Monday, May 10  |  6:00 – 8:00 pm ET
Instructor: Tracy Lawson

The cultural influence of our ancestors fades with each successive generation, and we sometimes need additional information to fully understand a story set in another place and time. Author Tracy Lawson will share research and interpretation tips that will give you a deeper contextual understanding of time and place so what you write about the past will never feel stodgy or dated.

Commit to Submit!
Monday, May 17  |  6:00 – 8:00 pm ET
Instructor: Lisa Lopez Snyder

In this class, you'll learn how to conduct a targeted search of where to publish your work, tips for organizing that process, an overview of the protocols for submitting your work (including links to drafting query letters), and ways to find agents (primarily fiction/novel) and non-agented, small independent presses. Please note: This session does not focus on how to self-publish your work.

Poetry Boot Camp
Monday, May 24  |  6:00 – 8:00 pm ET
Instructor: Scott Woods

What is your poetry capable of under pressure? Are there missed opportunities in the nooks and crannies of your poems? Like a real boot camp, this session takes poems through the paces, running them through obstacles and challenges, and taking the work through the ringer in a series of exercises. Bring a poem (or create it in session) and watch it transform!
