About San Francisco Advanced Workshops

Students entering the Advanced Workshops have plenty of experience and sophistication. Here they take on the next challenge: honing the skills and developing the healthy habits that will sustain them throughout their writing lives. They develop increased self-awareness about their own internal process, as well as increasing control over the “voice” that’s unique to them and over their narrative choices. Students at this level continue to do exercises from the Craft Class, but they also routinely complete poems and stories to submit for publication, and work toward creating a book-length manuscript. Teachers in the school also participate in this workshop.

Open only to students who have completed The Writers Studio San Francisco Workshop and Intermediate Workshop, and upon recommendation of the teacher.

The Writers Studio San Francisco classes meet once a week for eight weeks.  For more information, please contact Gail Ford: 510 406-0520 or [email protected].

The teacher’s comments on the first exercise helped me tremendously with rewrites. They alone were worth the cost of the class!

Every week, I presented a new story. Finally something did click, the very thing that’s their specialty at The Writers Studio, emotional content.
