Do you plan to be writing this September? Then consider joining a workshop! Back by popular demand, Myla Goldberg will continue to lead fiction workshops at Paragraph this fall, and there's room at the table. The workshop starts on Monday, September 17th, and will meet for 8 weeks at Paragraph's Union Square location every Monday evening from 6:30-9:00pm, through November 5th.
Designed for writers looking to receive constructive and specific feedback within a supportive and engaged community of their peers, participants range in age from twenty-somethings to sixty-somethings, and represent various experience writing levels and interests, from flash fiction to the novel.
Everyone will get to present work twice, with additional time to discuss published stories from the perspective of craft, a model based on the workshops Myla has led over 10 years of teaching at the MFA programs of Brooklyn College, NYU, and Sarah Lawrence.
The workshop is open to 10 students, and will cost $750. (First 4 Paragraph members receive a $50 discount.) Myla is accepting applications (10-15 double-spaced pages of prose, please) now through Monday, August 27th, on a first-come, first-served basis. This means an application received on August 5th will be prioritized above one of equal caliber received on August 20th.
Interested in the workshop, but not sure you can swing an 8-week situation? 4-week attendees may be possible, space permitting, so drop Myla a line if that's you.
Applications, questions, and random haikus can be sent to Myla at firstname.lastname@example.org.
