Start the New Year off right with a writing gift to yourself! There are only a few seats still available for Dr. Saundra Goldman’s spring class: The Practice of Reading and Writing Together, so register today.

This class combines writing practice with the practice of close and careful reading for craft. Each month the class will cover a different book, selected for its example of structure, scene, setting, etc. Then, students will try those techniques in class using the structure of writing practice. In between meetings, students will write in small groups, either online or in person, depending on the schedules of group members.

This class requires a commitment to regular writing practice, including writing with the small group, reading the assigned material at least once, and reading/listening to one another’s work without judgment or comment. Students will have the opportunity to turn in one piece of writing to the instructor for feedback.

Preliminary Reading List:
· Thunder and Lightning, by Natalie Goldberg
· Insatiable, by Erica Rivera (author will do phone chat with the class)
· The Best Day, The Worst Day, by Donald Hall
· On Chesil Beach, by Ian McEwan
· Larry’s Party, by Carol Shields

Dr. Saundra Goldman brings years of experience in writing practice, including intensive study with Natalie Goldberg. She is a writer and art historian. Her short stories, essays, and reviews have been published in literary journals, museum catalogs, textbooks, anthologies, and professional journals, including Art News, New Art Examiner, Art Papers, Theater and Drama Review, and the Texas Observer. She also served as art critic to the Austin American-Statesman and the Austin Chronicle. She is currently writing a book about the feminist performance artist and sculptor Hannah Wilke.
