Writing Group Online with Sandra Thibodeaux
Over three months, you will receive direct feedback on your writing via email correspondence.
Perhaps you’re looking to refine your drafts. Perhaps you’re in need of a fresh set of eyes, or some pointers on your technique, style and voice. Maybe you are looking to maintain momentum with an extended project and simply work better to deadlines. Or maybe you are based remotely and can’t attend workshops in person.
If so, this group is for you. It’s all about drafting, reflection and constructive criticism in a structured and supportive online setting.
Open to writers working in any genre or form.
- The course is run completely by email.
- Each month for three months, you will submit up to 1500 words. This could be a stand-alone story that fits the word limit, multiple short works, or an excerpt from a manuscript or extended project. You may choose to work on different pieces each round, or to develop the one with multiple drafts–it’s up to you.
- The following week you’ll receive feedback from Sandra Thibodeaux and your peers.
- All participants will be given the opportunity to read and comment on writing from others in the group. While this process of giving feedback is optional, it is strongly encouraged. Participation will enrich the process overall and help you to reflect on and improve your own writing.
- Basic competency with, and access to internet and a computer is a requirement of this course. We will be using .doc, .docx files.
- For this group submissions deadlines will be midnight Sunday Sept 10, Sunday Oct 8, Sunday November 5.
