Happy fall to all! Here in Minneapolis it’s crisp and cool and invigorating, my favorite kind of weather. I’ve just scheduled my fall series of workshops and would love to see you on my (virtual) porch for an exhilarating, fun, intensive afternoon or evening. All my 3.5-hour workshops are taught via Zoom and designed for writers of any and all experience. No preparation or skills required. Each workshop requires a minimum of five participants and is strictly capped at ten.
One-day workshop fee: $100. Note that I also offer a pay-as-you’re-able option to participants under financial duress (I’ve been there myself), up to two per class, from $10-$95, no questions asked.
Registration and payment: To register for an individual workshop, email me at email@example.com or simply send payment and note which class you’re registering for. Registration is tentative until payment is received. You may send payment via Venmo to @Alison-McGhee-1, Zelle to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by personal check. Please email me with any questions.
See below for our fall workshop at a glance. For details about each workshop and testimonials from past participants, please head on over to my workshop page.

ALSO, I’m in the midst of designing a one-week Writing Together session for January 2023. This is a brand-new offering of morning and/or evening one-hour writing sessions offered via Zoom. Each morning and evening for one full week, I’ll open by reading a poem or micro prose piece focused on a certain emotion or experience, then offer an accompanying 20-minute prompt in which we all write together. There’s strength and joy in working together, even if it’s silent, even if our little Zoom boxes are black, and I’m so looking forward to this new offering. More details to come!
