Join creative non-fiction writer/teacher/author Nina Boutsikaris for her 6-session creative non-fiction writing workshop.
This is the perfect workshop for folks who need the structure and support to bring their CNF to the next level of development.
Workshops will vary week to week depending on the small group’s specific needs and if folks are looking for feedback on works in progress. Sessions will always include at least thirty minutes of writing time based off creative prompts, discussion of a craft essay or topic, and time for sharing/feedback/commisterating of some sort.
The workshops will be offered EVERY OTHER week for six weeks, 7-9pm, beginning Thursday, January 10th. This provides the opportunity for revision and reflection between sessions.
The workshop is offered on a sliding scale. Please contribute the full cost tier when possible making it possible for others with financial need to select the lower tier.
In addition to registering below please send along a writing sample (no more than 1,000 words) with a brief note about why you want to join the workshop (This could be anything from “start my memoir” to “find my voice” or “need structured writing time)
Nina holds an MFA in Creative Nonfiction, from University of Arizona. She teaches Writing the Essay at the New School and is currently working on an autobiographical novel that interrogates creativity, success, anxiety, and isolation in a hyper-individualized, hyper-capitalized age. She joins the Instar team, sharing her talents as an editorial writer and helping keep the press releases flowing and fabulous. As an emerging writer she feels a commitment to a shared spaced with shared values is vital; where she can not only get good work done, but can also share ideas, talk, be inspired, and collaborate, which is why she joined Instar Lodge.
“Nina has a gentle way with criticism. I don’t know what I was expecting, but her comments were so insightful that after reading them I would go back to my piece and have a real aha moment.”
