The Format
The focus is on individual critique. Class limited to 10 participants. Open to writers at all levels. Please bring 10 copies of your work (5 page maximum).

The Philosophy
"Many creatures must make, but only one must seek within itself what to make." We are that creature. We alone must make objects of meaning. Bring what you have to this writing workshop: the opening line of a poem, a novel excerpt, an idea. Find what you are trying to make. Get started. Go deeper into what you have. See more clearly the finishing touches you must now do. Take a step toward more powerful, truthful and beautiful work.

The Instructor
Mary Rakow, Ph.D., comes to fiction from theology. A graduate of Harvard Divinity School, she is the recipient of a Lannan Foundation Literary Fellowship. Her novel, The Memory Room, was shortlisted for the Stanford University Libraries Saroyan Prize, finalist for Los Angeles Times Fiction Prize, and one of The Los Angeles Times Ten Best Books of the West in 2002.

"The Memory Room marks the rarest of occurrences - the debut of a literary master." Janet Fitch, White Oleander.

"Mary Rakow is a breathtaking writer and passionate teacher." Sam Dunn, Failing Paris.

Limited to 10 participants.
