The Technique Workshop
Begin Again. Refresh and renew your writing practice with this one-of-a-kind workshop, inspired by the technique classes dancers attend throughout their dancing lives: classes that can be a chance to try new steps, rethink strategies, gather strength and agility—outside the pressures of performance. Each week, this workshop will be an opportunity for you to stretch, experiment, restore.
Each class meeting will begin with a writing warm-up, move on to more complex exercises, and then end with something quiet. The pattern and focus of the exercises will be drawn from a short story to be distributed. There will be a (short!) homework assignment for each class. All writers are welcome.
Wednesdays, September 25–November 6 (skipping October 9)
6:30 p.m.–9:00 p.m.
Where are the Master Classes and workshops located?
Currently, all Master Classes and workshops are held online on Zoom or Google Meet.
I registered but did not receive a link. What do I do?
Can I receive a recording of a past or upcoming workshop or class?
No. The only way to attend a Master Class or workshop is live.
Is closed captioning available?
Yes. Otter.ai live notes are available for all Master Classes held on Zoom and Google Meet, and on a case-by-case basis for workshops. (If you are signed up for a workshop, please discuss closed captioning with your instructor.) To view the notes, look for the red LIVE dropdown menu in the top left of your Zoom screen and select View Stream on Otter.ai.
Are scholarships available?
The Master Class or workshop I want to join is sold out. Is there a waitlist?
I signed up for a class but can't make it. Can I be refunded?
But I signed up for a class after the cut-off point for a full refund had passed. Can I still be eligible for a full refund?
No. Please be aware of our cancellation policy upon registration.
I'd like to transfer my registration to someone else. Is this possible?
If you need to cancel your enrollment in an Academy class, please let us know as soon as possible. We can only offer full refunds if you cancel two weeks prior to the start of class. After that, before the start date of class, we can offer a 50% refund. We cannot refund day-of cancellations, and we cannot refund or partially refund tuition once the class has begun.
