Do you like being tethered to the craft concerns of teaching creative writing in order to fuel your own creative practice? Do you enjoy mentoring emerging writers? Giving great feedback on work and creating lessons that help students grow into the kind of writers they dream of becoming? If you're passionate about these things, have a track record of publication and have experience teaching fiction, poetry, nonfiction or screenwriting, we'd love to talk to you.
To let you know a little more about Writing Workshops Detroit, in general we'll offer two kinds of classes for creative writers:
- One-time seminars on Sunday afternoons/evenings that cover either the craft of writing or the business of writing and last about 2.5 hours. Seminar topics will be updated on a rolling basis, and we'd like to offer a seminar a few Sundays each month. Let us know what kinds of topics you're passionate about presenting.
- 8-Week Writing Workshops that meet once a week for two or two and a half hours each on a dedicated night of the week, ideally from 6:30PM-8:30PM or 7:00PM-9:00PM, for eight weeks straight. Our classes will meet at Bamboo Detroit downtown. What kind of workshop would you teach?
If you have any interest in teaching a workshop or offering a craft seminar we'd love to talk with you. You can see our current list of Instructors here.
We're open to your ideas for great course offerings. We follow the passion of our teaching artists, and we like to try new things at Writing Workshops Detroit. Tell us how you'd like to be part of our growing creative writing community in 2018 and beyond. Introduce yourself via the button below. We look forward to hearing from you!
