Writing Classes


A new section begins on Monday, February 7, 2022
Spring dates: Feb. 7, March 7, April 4, May 2, June 6, 2022.

Our minds are filled with stories–from our lives, our offices, our dreams. Therapy is one way of digging down deep and transforming ourselves. So is writing. Join our ongoing Monday night monthly workshop series. Five, two-hour workshops will help you open up to your own stories. Writing exercises, meditations, and readings will help you bring your stories to life on the page. Whether you are writing fiction or creative non-fiction, memoirs or personal essays, our workshop will help you tap into your experiences and turn them into stories.

All great works of fiction and creative non-fiction are built on the same premise: story-telling. In these workshops, you will learn how to apply the principles of story-telling to build scenes, develop characters, write dialogue (both interior monologue and spoken dialogue), utilize description, and weave together the threads of your imagination and experience into powerful, memorable stories.

For each class, you may submit five pages of your work (1250 words double spaced) and will receive written feedback. All classes include in-class writing prompts, discussion of 250-word homework assignments and critique of the short, assigned readings you will receive upon registration.

Dates: see above
Location: Zoom (until further notice)
Fee: $650. To reserve, please Zelle or Venmo @Judith-Rabinor or send a check to: Judy Rabinor, 36 Biarritz Street, Lido Beach. NY 1156.
