WDtS Ask A Writer: Virtual Office Hours
Due to COVID-19 related closures, these office hours sessions are being conducted remotely. Please register in advance so that your instructor can send you information on how to join before your session begins.
These office hours are open to anyone who wants to ask an instructor a question about a creative writing project, resources, opportunities, upcoming classes, and tips. Feel free to bring 1 page of your work with you to the Office Hours for a light review/discussion. (Depending on the size of the group, we can cover more pages or adapt to respond to as many students as possible.) These sessions can also be used simply to chat about your writing goals or questions. Whatever works for you.
Please note that these sessions will be conducted in a group setting, and that you may be sharing time and work with a number of other students. At this time, we aren't able to read and respond to more than one page of writing or read manuscripts outside of Office Hours, but we are exploring these options for the future! Keep checking back for updates and additions to our programming.
Who Should Register?
Write Down the Street has a special focus on making the creative writing workshop more accessible to those who face challenges due to cost, language skills, lack of access to transportation, and other barriers. We believe that all voices must be spotlighted with the range and fullness they deserve.
These programs are offered tuition-free thanks to the support of generous donors who are committed to our mission of ensuring all voices are heard.
About GrubStreet Remote Classes
GrubStreet will be hosting all of our classes remotely from now through the month of April. We’ve decided as a staff that the best thing we can do for our community is to follow the advice of public health experts, and participate in the social distancing that’s recommended to help slow the spread of disease. You will be able to participate in class via Zoom videoconference from wherever you’re most comfortable. All you’ll need is a laptop or a phone! You’ll receive an email from your instructor on the day your class is scheduled with a link to join the class meeting via Zoom–no need to download anything or sign up for Zoom in advance! If you have questions about remote learning, please feel free to reach out to [email protected] for more information.
