Upcoming Courses

This summer is shaping up to be one full of fun writing opportunities! If you’re looking for something creative to do in an air-conditioned, inspiring location, take a creative writing class through the Montclair Adult School and held at the Montclair Public Library on Fullerton Ave in Montclair, NJ. I’ll be there on Mondays, teaching two classes back-to-back.

The semester is short, running just four weeks (who doesn’t have time for that?), and classes only meet once during the week. All the details are below:

Writing Children’s Picture Books

No other writing genre is as influential in a child’s life as picture books. Created for adult writers of picture books, this class will practice different writing and revision techniques to create one or more memorable stories for children. Bring a copy of your favorite fairy tale with you to the first class.
Schedule : Weekly – Mon 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM; 4 sessions; starting 7/11/2016, ending 8/1/2016


Memoir Writing

We store our memories like movies and photographs. We revisit them time and again, trying to make sense of our lives. To construct a memoir, we need to draw out these memories and get them on the page. This memoir-writing workshop will provide the supportive environment you need to start a memoir from scratch or to take your work-in-progress to the next level.

Schedule : Weekly – Mon 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM; 4 sessions; starting 7/11/2016, ending 8/1/2016

Visit the Adult School of Montclair’s website  to sign up or to learn about more classes.

Hope to see you there!


  1. Katie, it sounds like fun. I love getting together with other writers. I always learn so much. Unfortunately, I’m going to be out of town most of that time. Keep up the good work.
