Robert Mayer, author
Books and workshops
My next writing workshops will start:
Tuesday, January 6, 2015 (and Wednesday, January 7, if there are enough students.)
I am the author of 14 published books, including The Dreams of Ada and The Origin of Sorrow. Twelve are novels ,two are non-fiction works. Before writing those I spent 10 years as a journalist in New York City, winning several awards.
This will be the sixth year of the workshops. The focus is on writing novels or non-fiction books (not poetry or screenplays, I'm afraid.)
Each workshop runs for eight weeks, three hours per week, from 2 to 5 in the afternoon. Students write at home and bring in copies of their work to be read and critiqued by the other students and myself. A number of students have attended for two years or more. Several published books have emerged from the workshops.
We meet in a comfortable studio on San Mateo, near Chocolate Maven, with plenty of free parking.
The fee for each eight week workshop is $325 plus tax, payable at the first session.
To ask questions or reserve space, write email@example.com or call 505-438-0012. We’re friendly. Really.
