In our weekend workshops, you’ll work closely with an engaging and passionate, accomplished writer who will provide a series of lessons, followed by prompts. Then you’ll generate a new piece of writing and get feedback on it from the instructor as well as the other participants in your group.
See below for our current classes.
GAIN A WRITING COMMUNITY
“Quite simply, I have produced and published work drafted in these workshops that doesn’t happen without them. And the best part is that I’ve gained a writing community from the Bending Genres workshops.”

Praise for the Bending Genres Online Workshops
Surpassed my Expectations!
“Alina’s prose poetry workshop surpassed my expectations! I feel as though I were given a semester’s worth of in-depth instruction and several fabulous prompts I can use in the future. Alina’s style of teaching is both motivating and inspiring and her feedback excellent and encouraging. A great experience!”
Extraordinary on So Many Levels
“Without question, this was one of the most fulfilling instructional courses I’ve ever taken. Alina Stefanescu was extraordinary on so many levels. Her materials were dense, varied, clear and thought-provoking. She came at the craft in unusual ways that were invigorating and that at once opened up my creativity, unlocking ideas and phrasings that were fresh and new to me. As wonderful as all that was, Alina was so generous with her feedback on each and every piece, highlighting what worked and offering ideas to consider if I wanted to take the piece in a different direction. Bending Genres nails it time and time again with their workshops, and Alina’s took it to a screaming next level.”
“I have taken several of the Bending Genres workshops now, and I do it for one reason—they work. I feel very excited by the prospect of sinking in to a weekend of writing and learning so much about the craft of flash. I love the variety of teachers (all of whom are experts in the field) and to share my writing and the whole process. I’d say nearly all the stories I’ve written during the workshops have gotten published. Highly recommended.“
