Write your truth. Tell your stories. Make a commitment to yourself. Wherever you’re from, whatever you’ve survived, however you live—it’s all fodder for your work. Your unique experiences are vital to creating and critiquing. This multi-genre workshop will serve as a tool for self-discovery and story excavation under the guidance of two professional writers in a focused, supportive environment.
Generate dynamic new material through exercises and peer review; revive dormant work using elements of craft, community and critique. By the end of the course, writers should be comfortable sharing their writing and offering constructive criticism.
This is a multi-genre online workshop for anyone serious about turning life stories into publishable works. Our stories span generations, theme, structure and region. Thanks to the Internet, Life’s a Bitch Books offers access to professionals and dialogue with a worldwide writing community.
We will be publishing 50% to 75% of students’ work (depending on quality) in one of our upcoming anthologies.
Cara Bruce brings fiction, publishing and editing expertise to the class, while Shawna Kenney offers nonfiction and memoir advice. Both have nurtured many writers on their way to publication.
Online workshops allow you to set your own schedule, no matter how busy you are. In addition, online writing workshops give you the opportunity to present your work with no fear. It is often easier to share your most personal experiences online instead of face to face. Assignments are given weekly and feedback is given daily.
