Intensity. As the foremothers intended.

The Weekend Focus is a writerly "boot camp" that will help you take your writing to the next level in a supportive and stimulating environment. Our space in the heart of downtown Boston provides the energy and inspiration to encourage you to push yourself intellectually and artistically.

Together, we will step outside of our comfort zones to experiment with new ways of thinking about our writing. Often the places that are hardest to reach are where the best creative work is born.

This is a three-day intensive writing experience for people who are ready to take their writing to places previously unexplored, to receive feedback, work on craft, discuss issues at the core of the writer’s experience, while developing fresh writing perspectives and techniques. The program consists of discussions, critique workshops, writing challenges, discussions about the writing life, and so much more.
