In Our Handmaidens’ Tale, we will review elements of craft to help women get their power back through memoir and personal essay writing. Bring work that you have already begun, and over the course of two sessions we will help you shape character, story, tension, point of view, plot or other craft issues that may have stalled the completion of your project. You’ll also have a chance to receive valuable feedback from other writers and devoted readers.
