Dear Ear, Dear Snowy Owl, I’m so sorry I haven’t written in a while: A Generative Workshop with Nina Schuyler

August, 9-11, 2024

Dear __________,

It’s been an eternity! I’ve been thinking about you endlessly.

Dear Body, thank you for the years of good health and bad. At least it was only an earache. Dear Nietzsche, what a bitter man you can be—why so gloomy? Dear Sadness; Dear Little Lamp; Dear Executor of my Will; Dear Younger Self; Dear Older Self; Dear Deer.

In this online and asynchronous generative workshop, we’ll revive the epistolary—let’s write to everything and everyone. And then we’ll let the letter evolve and take another shape: a memo, a document, a slide show, an Excel sheet, wherever your imagination takes you.

Come join me and play.

Online Roundtable

This four month program brings the experience of our instructors (like our very own editor-in-chief and award-winning writer Robert Vaughan and our fiction editor Meg Tuite) in an informal online setting. Participants receive a monthly “lesson” and writing prompts, mid-month meetings with your cohort in an optional full group Zoom Meeting, and monthly one-on-one sessions with the instructor via Zoom.

Writing Retreats

Each year we offer week-long, in person writing retreats. You will have the opportunity and inspiration to explore the unique challenges that writers face in writing a new piece each day. The Writing Retreat is ideal for writers of all levels of experience, from previously published to novice writers who are ready to launch into new terrain.
