Two tentative courses coming through New York Writers Workshop

I have two upcoming classes tentatively confirmed through New York Writers Workshop. These will be taught on Zoom so anyone anywhere can attend! Hope the time zones work for you. Details soon.

Writing to Save the World (Just in time for inauguration day!)

Frances Kai-Hwa Wang

How do we use our writing to create real world change? How do we find our voices and get our message out? How do we use writing to touch, inspire, persuade, and provoke readers to action? Learn simple but powerful methods to get the ideas out of our heads and onto the page. We will consider different forms including Op-Ed, persuasive essay, spoken word, social media, art. Part writing, part activism, a lot of heart, this class aspires to use the written word to create the change you want to see in the world. Bring a notebook and a pen.

Online 6 weeks, Sundays, Jan 17, 24, 31, Feb 7, 14, 21, 2021 3-5pm EST TENTATIVE

Jumpstart your Memoir 
(Great gift for your elders to make them write down the life stories you’ve been begging them for!)

Frances Kai-Hwa Wang

Everyone has interesting stories to tell, but not everyone knows where to begin. Whether you want to write a memoir for your loved ones or you want to make sense of your life, why not start here, one word, one story at time? Learn simple but powerful methods to get the ideas out of your head and onto the page. Short writing and reading exercises, overcoming barriers to writing, taking chances with emotion, different memoir forms, remembering the past, making sense of the present. If you can talk story, you can write your story! Bring a notebook and pen.

Online 6 weeks, Sundays, March 7-Apr 18 (no Easter 4/4), 2021, 3-5pm EST TENTATIVE MAY CHANGE
