Classes

Writing isn't for the faint of heart, but if you're reading this, you know it could be for you. Whether you are just getting started or looking to perfect the memoir you've drafted so it's ready for querying, you're in the right place. From useful craft talks to time to generate to individualized, one-on-one feedback, I'm here for what you want to write. Your story matters. Let me help you learn to tell it.

 

Below are classes I teach right here through Zoom. Please click on each title for description and registration information. All classes and workshops in Eastern time. Below the classes are "Open Writing Events" which are open to the public at no charge. I also teach classes regularly at GrubStreet, Boston's creative writing center. Please check their site and my linktree for my upcoming Grub classes.

Open Writing Events

 

Every Friday, 7 - 9 pm Eastern.

 

No registration needed. 

Bring whatever you're working on! That thing you want to cross off your list, that edit you owe, that awful chapter, that rewrite, that essay, that unfinished thing! Or, just show up with your laptop or a notebook and pen and I will pop some prompts into the chat and you can try something new. Cameras on or off, come in pajamas, be on screen or off, pop in for some or all, drop in, drop off, whatever works for you works for us.

TESTIMONIALS

"Whether you are new to writing or a long-time writer, Aimee is responsive to where you are in your journey. As a new writer and adoptee, I have found belonging in Aimee's classes. Aimee is patient and kind. With each prompt and class Aimee challenges my thinking, instills confidence in each writer, and helps me take the next step on my path as a writer." 

ELENA PEREIRA, WRITER & EDUCATOR

"Aimee’s class came along just when I needed it. With each class and each prompt, plus her endless encouragement, I completed a first draft of my next personal essay. A real breakthrough. As if that weren’t enough, she offered to edit a longer essay I’d written months ago to help me reposition it for submission to a publication. She did an outstanding job. I thank her for everything!" 

ANDI POLLINGER, ESSAYIST

"They say that the best writing feedback does not seek to advise or critique. As a teacher of memoir, Aimee asks the right questions, offers thoughtful writing prompts, and provides examples that allow us to dig deeper into our own personal truth to create compelling works of nonfiction that sparkle on the page."
