Adult (18+)

This is a facilitated writing group designed for accountability and community building. An instructor will be present to facilitate and offer general guidance, but this is not a writing class, and it won’t involve craft lessons or in-depth feedback on your writing. Please check out our hundreds of writing class offerings for those features! These groups are a great option for anyone who’s at work on a project and looking to set aside some time each week to make progress on their writing and connect with others.

Writing can feel like such a solitary act, especially when you belong to a community that is severely underrepresented in the literary world. To help alleviate that sense of isolation, this group provides encouragement and communal support for Latine Writers in a relaxed, low-stress environment. We'll meet for 90 minutes once a week for six weeks to write, connect, ask questions, seek advice, vent, and share snippets of our work, all while the instructor curates a focus-friendly café playlist. This is a facilitated group meeting without readings that will begin with a check-in and end with a check-out. The instructor will be available throughout each session for one-on-one conversations about anything writing related. 

Class Format

This class will take place using Zoom videoconferencing. About 15 minutes before your class is scheduled to begin, you'll receive an email from your instructor with a link to join the class meeting!
