Writing Home

A 5-week workshop. What does it mean to write about home? In this generative craft class, we’ll examine home in architecture, nations, and the human body. Each week, we'll take a look at a published work of writing and use it as a springboard for our own work. We will look at works including "Hansel and Gretel" by The Brothers Grimm, Fun Home by Alison Bechdel, and The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. Everyone will have the opportunity to read their writing aloud in class and receive supportive feedback. Assignments will include minimal reading (max 2 pages) and a short essay of 2.5 double spaced pages responding to the week's prompt.

Who Should Take This Class
This class is a great starting point for anyone exploring memoir writing for the first time or for anyone looking to develop new material. The class will focus on nonfiction, but writers are welcome to experiment in any genre.


“Samantha Steiner’s ‘Submitting to Lit Journals’ course was just what I needed to kickstart my submissions to lit journals. I put off doing so because I didn’t know where to begin and what to expect in the process. Samantha offers helpful guidance on how to identify, organize, submit to, and manage both acceptances and rejections from journals. She leaves no question unanswered about the process with her own successful submission record serving as evidence of a method that works. After taking Samantha’s course, I now have a systematized strategy for submitting my work, and am ready and excited to get started.” - Terri Linton (Catapult contributor)

“Samantha is a writer bursting with information about the literary world. She takes care with her explanations and goes the extra mile to ensure that you really understand the process. She is a deep listener, reader, and thinker who is able to go deep into your text to see the meaning behind the meanings and will allow you to unlock your work’s greatest potential.” - former student

"I found this class so incredibly valuable. Samantha magically and enthusiastically took the anxiety out of submitting in a comprehensive presentation that led us, step by step, to understanding and demystifying the process of submitting to literary journals. She generously shared her own processes and made particular suggestions for each of us, based on how we described our own writing. I have already recommended her class to other writer friends. This class is fantastic. I'm so glad I took it." - former student
