Weekend Workshop Intensives 


Please note: We’ve paused our Weekend Workshop Intensives while we make them more accessible for writers across time zones, family commitments, and professional obligations. We look forward to reconvening them in 2023.

What are we offering?

In the spirit of community-building, we’ve hosted quarterly weekend-long writing intensives since 2020. These workshop are related to our quarterly issues, revolve around a given theme, and apply to all genres.

What will the workshop intensives include?

Written lectures, writing tasks, and three Zoom video conferences with the editor: a welcome conference, a shut-up-and-write style conference, and a wrap-up conference.

These intensives won’t be run like a formal workshop though: they’re about generating or revising your writing, though you can bring questions to the video conferences and post feedback and comments on the workshop forum.

How much does it cost?

Current contributors and volunteers: Free!

The workshop intensives are free for all contributors of our most recent issue as well as our volunteer staff.

General registrants: Pay-what-you-can

We believe in removing barriers, so our workshops are now pay-what-you-can. We will never turn anyone away for lack of funds.

Where does the money go?

100% of workshop fees go to the participating editor(s).

Who can sign up?

Sign-up is available to all present contributors, volunteers, and participants. We can only accept 20 people per weekend intensive to make sure the workshop is worthwhile to all participants, though.

We enroll all current contributors automatically. We select all other participants by lottery, regardless of who can pay

When will sign-up be available and when does the workshop start?

Sign-up is available two weeks before the release of each issue. The weekend intensives start two weeks after the issue release.
