"This workshop is an opportunity to get meaningful feedback on a writing project and go through the re-writing process that it necessary to produce your best work. I have taken many workshops, and find Heather one of the best coaches I’ve experienced. This is a workshop for serious and aspiring writers." -- Terryl Donovan


The CW Workshop is open to prose writers at all levels and in all genres and forms of fiction and nonfiction, including flash pieces, chapters, essays, short stories, letters and memoir.

In each group workshop, I work to identify your writing goals and to help you generate material. From there I cover the elements of craft and help you incorporate these elements into your own writing. As part of this plan, you will produce pages weekly and bring them to the workshop for constructive critique. The group may also read and analyze selected short stories and essays to learn how to read like a writer, and consider how others handle craft and technique. 

The group workshop is limited to five participants per class, and is an intensive rewarding experience to help you grow as a writer and coax your work into publishable form.  In this unique, intensive, workshop, many writers have found their voice, and are on course to complete books.

The workshop is offered in-person (on Long Island) and remotely (via Skype or Zoom), and runs for six weeks. Enrollment is ongoing, as many writers choose to stay on and use the workshop as an incubator for their books. The cost is $300 for 6 sessions.
