—Buddy Wakefield, A Choir of Honest Killers

This is a well-rounded month-long writing-centric creativity course exploring the point of connection in everything.

Course Begins: September 2, 2020

6:45-8:15pm PST
September 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th

You don’t have to be brilliant every time you show up. You just have to show up.

You’re Doing It Right includes:

  • Weekly 90-minute live writing session and discourse lead by Buddy.
  • Q&A with Buddy to review each session.
  • An opportunity for writing and performance coaching and feedback.
  • A fifth session with a well-established special guest in the field.
  • Private Facebook group for questions, sharing, and feedback during the week.
  • A post-course downloadable review of the information accrued throughout your month-long experience.

What you can expect:

  • Expect to walk away a more dangerous writer.
  • Expect to develop a keen awareness of what’s at hand, and what’s ahead, for you and your work.

  • Expect to write, to listen, to participate, and to not be brilliant.
  • Expect to shift gears quickly during each session.
  • Information and feedback may be presented in a straightforward manner so as to not confuse beaches with bombs.
  • Trigger warning: there will be no trigger warnings.
