We all have them: drafts that we can't let go. Maybe they're unfinished, maybe a tangled mess. Maybe they're technically proficient but kind of boring, yet they keep pulling us back. In this workshop, we'll tackle these rock-in-shoe, popcorn-kernel-in-teeth drafts, the ones that won't let you go. To do this, we'll work together to find the story hiding beneath the words then complete multiple drafts and draft-adjacent freewrites to unlock the story's potential. This isn't about moving words and sentences around the page; it's about digging deep. Expect to write until your hand hurts. Expect a supportive community and instructor feedback to help these projects reach their full potential.
This class takes place remotely online via Zoom.
