Five meetings • $200
March 20 – April 17
If you’re working on a book, and writing too little, it’s time to enter Finishing School.
We struggle separately, alone with the pitfalls. Learn to finish, without judgment or even reading each other’s work, at Finishing School. We gather and make schedules for the week to come, getting specific about what we’ll do. Details help. We meet in person because it’s personal work.
You receive a partner who does the same — a writing buddy so you can stay in touch with the work. You promise to text or email your buddy the moment you begin working.
We meet weekly and share how our plans worked. We plan and propose again, meet again, share about our efforts and learn effective processes. We’ll take a good run at our project amid the session with a two-week intensive period after we’ve met a few times, staying in touch with texts while we pursue the finishing. We come back together for the last two weeks and show off what we’ve done.
It’s all powered by practices of the Amherst Writers & Artists, the method that drives the Workshop. Get that writing project finished, polished, and published. Rely upon accountability without judgment, propelled by support.
