>> “THE WRITERS STUDIO HAS CLARIFIED MY THINKING ABOUT WRITING, given me the opportunity to practice a wide variety of techniques, and provided a supportive group of people to critique my efforts. Eleanor Kedney is an insightful teacher and a remarkably acute reader. I have learned a great deal from being in her classes, and my writing has improved significantly.” –David Anderson, fiction writer in the Tucson Advanced Workshop taught by Eleanor Kedney
>> HONE YOUR SKILLS AS A WRITER AND TAKE OUR CRAFT CLASS. In this 9-week program, you learn to recognize the techniques writers use to achieve their literary goals and how to apply these techniques to your own writing. This session, we will be reading works by Jill Cement, Philipp Meyer, Robert Pinsky, Adrienne Rich, Yusef Komunyakaa, Jim Shepard, and Nobel prize winner Tomas Transtromer, among others, and welcome two guest teachers, poet Cathy Hong and fiction writer Julie Otsuka. You can attend the classes in person or simply access them through podcasts. Check out our current reading list.
