If you’re a Writer-ish newsletter subscriber, you’re invited to quarterly office hours with me via Zoom.

This is a chance to ask any burning questions about writing or writing micro prose, organizing your work, establishing a writing practice, or staying inspired. If you’re feeling stuck with a project or need some suggestions on what to do next, this is the place to be. You can also swing by and hang out, ask me to give you a writing prompt or two, or drop in/drop out as needed.

I’ll kick off the conversation with a different writing topic (aka sidebar chat) each quarter. Sessions are not recorded. Attendees receive a follow-up email with any resources discussed.

The 2024 dates are:

  • Q1: March 30, 2024 (Saturday): 1:00 – 2:00 pm PST (sidebar chat: getting your work into the world)
  • Q2: May 5, 2024 (Sunday): 1:00 – 2:00 pm PST (sidebar chat: the multi-genre author — who says you have to choose?!)
  • Q3: September 21, 2024 (Saturday): 1:00 – 2:00 pm PST (sidebar chat: shiny objects and rabbit holes)
  • Q4: November 30, 2024 (Saturday): 11:00 am – 12:00 pm PST (sidebar chat: goal setting for 2025)

Newsletter subscribers will receive registration links in the newsletter. Not a subscriber yet? Sign up here. Prefer to have a one-on-one session with me? Those options are here.
