creative writing long island: 

WORKSHOPS I & II. FICTION AND NONFICTION

Do you have a story you’ve always wanted to tell? Are you midway through a writing project and need guidance?

CREATIVE WRITING I is open to beginner writers of prose in all genres and forms of fiction and nonfiction, including flash pieces, chapters, essays, short stories, letters and memoir.

CREATIVE WRITING II is a private course dedicated to more experienced writers seeking to advance their works.

In each workshop, we will first work to identify your writing goals and to generate material. From there, working at various levels, we will cover the elements of craft and work to 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. We 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.

Whether your goal is personal enrichment or publication, these workshops are a unique, affordable opportunity to get professional help and share your creative work in a safe, nurturing space.

Each course runs for six weeks, at various locations on Long Island in the evenings from 7:00- 9:00. Enrollment is ongoing. For current locations, times, and pricing, email heathersiegel8888@gmail.com
