Class Description

In this instructor-led writing group, writers will "sprint" together. With the guidance of their instructor and through the use of breakout groups, writers will engage in ten minutes of timed talking, group brainstorming, and problem solving, followed by a 30-minute writing sprint, followed by 10 minutes of talking, a 30-minute sprint, and so on, for 90 minutes once a week. Along the way, the instructor and the writers will begin to know each other's projects and brainstorm together. While it’s called “sprinting,” it doesn’t necessarily mean you have to write fast, you just have to write. The instructor will introduce the concept of accountability partners and serve as the lead for the course with weekly group emails. This group is best suited to writers who have taken courses and are versed in craft and looking to elevate their work via sprints and collaboration. A week prior to the first class, the instructor will send an introductory email to begin organizing the first session. Please keep an eye on your spam folders.

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!
