The Late Show: Fast & Furious Writing for Writers 50 & Up

Introductory | In this generative workshop, we’ll learn the seven crucial steps to (re)entering and maintaining a writing practice at a later stage in life; explore three different genres (fiction, nonfiction, and poetry) through prompts and a few readings; and talk about publishing in this age of shorter attention spans. You’ll come out with a plan and some pieces to edit and send out. You’ll also have fun.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
