Writers in the Mountains (WIM) presents Modern Love II, a six-week creative writing workshop with Elizabeth Koster, June 13 – July 18, 2023. The class will be held online Tuesdays, from 11 am to 1 pm. Once you register and pay, you will be given instructions on how to join the class.
Modern Love II is open to students who have taken a Modern Love course. In this class, participants will continue to study published essays and work weekly on sculpting and refining work to submit to The New York Times Modern Love column, and other publications. Students who have taken this class in the past have found the instructor’s gentle feedback and encouragement tremendously helpful in their work.
From Stacy DeBritz: “Elizabeth Koster’s Modern Love course was chock-full of inspiration, workshops, and nuts and bolts help. We read examples and discussed what to do, as well as what not to do, in submitting an essay to the New York Times column. Peer and instructor reviews were so beneficial! I’ve developed a network of writing/accountability partners with fellow students in this WIM course. The instruction, students, and feedback far exceeded my expectations.”
Elizabeth Koster’s work has appeared in River Teeth, Hobart, Lost Balloon, and The New York Times Modern Love column. She holds an MFA in creative nonfiction from Columbia University and has taught creative writing in public schools, nonprofits, and a program for incarcerated women on Rikers Island.
