This Level II online workshop runs for 6 weeks from July 5 – August 9 and meets online with 1-hour chats on Wednesdays from 20:00 – 21:00 CEST.

Level II builds on the core skills acquired in Level I. The focus is on deepening the emotional connection in your writing and continuing to expand your writerly toolkit through weekly exercises and in-depth analysis of poems and excerpts from stories and novels. The last quarter of the class is focused on carrying forward an exercise—building towards a complete story or publication-ready poem.

Each week you’ll be given a new exercise, which we’ll discuss during the live chat. If you can’t attend a chat, don’t worry—we’ll post a transcript so you don’t miss anything. You’ll upload your exercise by the following Monday. Critiques are given in writing via our online platform before the next chat.

This course is open to writers who have completed Level I (or who have an MFA in creative writing or equivalent training) and by permission of the instructor. If you’re new to our group, please drop us a line before registering.

Most writers take three terms of Level II workshops before moving to Level III.
