Study writing with me this summer in Paris


Creative Writing Workshop
at the Paris American Academy

July 1st through the 28th, 2006

I’ll be teaching an intensive, month-long creative writing workshop this summer at the Paris American Academy. College credit is available for this hands-on English-language writing program, which includes courses in:

  • Fiction
  • Poetry
  • Travel Writing
  • Memoir
  • Screenplays and dramatic writing
  • Literary journalism
  • Journal Writing
  • Presentation and Performance

In addition to taking classes and amassing writing portfolios, students will participate in one-on-one critiques with professional writers (inlcuding myself), give readings in Parisian bookshops, and receive "survival" French lessons. Other instructors include O. Henry Award-winning author and playwright John Biguenet, and novelist Lauren Grodstein.

Between classes and tutorials, there will be ample time to experience the city, attend cultural events, visit museums, learn history, take day-trips to the countryside, read books, hang out in cafes, dance by the Seine, and make friends from around the world.

Class size will be limited to 20 students, and slots are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
