Where: Courses will be taught in a private Facebook Group
Description: I’ll post a prompt/exercise 2 times per week from May 15-June 15. Students will write and share their stories with others in the workshop. Group members will be able to comment (give feedback) on all stories. However, we will only accept encouraging, helpful comments. Each student/member will be responsible for saving their stories after the workshop concludes. To sign up for this, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or else, you can message me on Facebook if we’re friends there. This course will take place in a [Secret] Facebook Group dedicated to this workshop only. Exercises given each Tuesday and Sunday.
