I wanted to let you know about three classes I'm teaching at The Writing Salon this fall:
*Intro to Creative Writing (9 wks., Tuesdays, 7-9:30 p.m., Oct. 13-Dec. 8, $365):
*Intro to Personal Essays (5 wks., Saturdays, 2-4:30 p.m., Nov. 14-Dec. 19 [skip 11/28], $215): http://www.writingsalons.com/class-descriptions/intro-to-personal-essay-2/
*Submit Your Work! (1 day, Sunday, 10 a.m.-1 p.m., Nov. 8, $65):
Prices are lower for Writing Salon members. Classes are held in a super comfy loft space in a converted factory at 19th and York in San Francisco (pretty exposed brick and big windows). We provide yummy tea and coffee and big mugs; students bring snacks.
I'm particularly excited about the Intro to Personal Essay class--it's brand-new!
