Fall 2014 Walker Percy Center community writing workshops

Loyola’s Walker Percy Center has released its slate of community writing workshops for Fall 2014.  Taught by experienced, published writers, these workshops provide aspiring writers of all skill levels a small, constructive environment to discuss their work and a reason to hurry up and get back on that daily writing regimen.

Instruction will be offered in a range of genres and disciplines, including creative nonfiction, fiction, screenwriting, and poetry.  Classes cost $250 and meet once per week for eight weeks at sites uptown at Loyola, downtown in the Marigny and Bywater, or on the northshore in Covington.

Instructors for this round of workshops include O’Henry Prize winner Alison Alsup and Mary McCarthy Prize for Short Fiction recipient Michael Jeffrey Lee, who will hold his fiction workshop at our very own Reading Room 220, located at Press Street HQ.  Local writers Thomas Andes, Mike Miley, Joseph Bradshaw, Jessica Kinnison, Alison Pelegrin, and David Rodriguez are also featured on the impressive cast of writers teaching this Fall.

The full who, what, and when, as well author bios and information on how to enroll, can be found at the Loyola Writing Institute’s website.
