Reconsidering The Poetry and Fiction Workshop I Am Taking

I’ve enjoyed my time with the poetry and fiction workshop I’m taking through the Writers Studio in New York (internal link), but I am considering dropping it. This recreational writing takes away from my paid writing and the pursuit of additional paid writing. This workshop is for personal enrichment and right now I don’t have the time for it.

I think the Writers Studio is a good match for anyone working on The Great American Novel. For me, though, I simply want to write decent commercial nonfiction. Magazine articles that run from 2,000 to 3,000 words. Told in first or second person. That’s what I produce.

My paid work also consists of blogs for trial lawyers and content creation for places like Can anyone tell me how to be better at news mastering? (internal link) Perhaps a better fit for me would be to enroll in a journalism or newspaper writing class. I may push through one more assignment from the Studio to see if I really want to continue.

“Child, to say the very thing you really mean, the whole of it, nothing more or less or other than what you really mean; that’s the whole art and joy of words.”
― C.S. Lewis
