Q: Will the workshops be online or in-person?
A: The workshops will be in-person unless the weather is treacherous.
Q: I am unable to attend all of the sessions. Can I still register? Is it ok to only pay for the sessions I will attend?
A: Your registration fee is for the seat. We hope you will attend as many sessions as possible, but we will need your whole registration fee to run the program.
Q: Why so expensive? Most of Lit Youngstown’s programming is free or very affordable.
A: This program will be more expensive to run than a short workshop. We will offer you a payment plan option if that would be helpful. This registration fee is high for Lit Youngstown, but still very low for a typical workshop of this length and quality.
Q: What is the commitment outside the workshop?
A: The commitment is to write one new story per month.
Q: Is this workshop tailored for writers of a certain experience level?
A: No. We are looking for participants of any experience level who will approach this workshop with commitment. We believe we are developing a forum that will allow everyone to receive high quality feedback on their work.
Q: Will you offer this workshop next year?
Each year, we’ll rotate genres and return to creative nonfiction in a few years.
