INDIVIDUALIZED TUTORIALS:

Pam Bernard
POETRY

For the poet who is interested in a longer term, individualized program, I offer a series of tutorials. The length of the tutorial will be a semester, or six months, comprised of three, two-month blocks. Once the semester has been completed, you may choose to entirely redesign your program, or plumb more deeply into aspects of your current one.

While each tutorial will be designed to accommodate the individual poet’s level of focus and need, the following are three basic structures, and an example for each.

See tutorial details:

A: Writing poems
B: Reading, examining, annotating poems
C: Combination of A and B

Fee structure: $600, for each block, payable at the start of the block. Total tutorial fee: $1,800.

MEMOIR
The memoir tutorial will be designed specifically to suit the writer’s needs and process. Generally it will consist of drafting new work, revision, and extensive study of craft as explored through pertinent essays written by writers in the genre, as well as short pieces or excerpts from important memoirs.

We’ll look at the classics as well as the most contemporary examples, to learn successful strategies for transforming experience into a compelling narrative.
