Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
Mother Words Online Summer Session – 8 weeks

No comments

June 11 - August 6 (no class the week of June 29)

Whether you are a new mom or a veteran, whether you gave birth to or adopted your child, in this online class you’ll learn how to take birth and motherhood stories and turn them into art. Weekly lectures, reading assignments and writing exercises will focus on telling details, character development, emotional distance, strengthening your reflective voice, and revision. You can expect to generate a number of short creative nonfiction pieces and one long piece. You will receive feedback from your peers and from me through online workshops.

This class is open to writers of all ability levels! Join us!
