Writing in a Pinch


Our good friends at the Pinch Literary Journal have put together a series of writing workshops to be held in early June. Writing is a craft, and it's hard, so if you want to get better it's a good idea to listen to those who do it.

From their website:

"If you are a fan of the Pinch, you know that we pride ourselves on selecting and publishing diverse poetry, fiction, and creative non-fiction. We are also a hardworking staff of graduate students in the English Department at the University of Memphis. We take and teach classes in creative writing at the university and we work hard for the Pinch. We write, we publish, we are the people we want to see in literary journals. We'd like to share some of that experience with the creative community in Memphis. We've got a plan. It's a good one. Won't you join us?"

Classes will be held at story booth (438 N. Cleveland), and run June 4th, 11th, and 18th. These dates correspond to classes in creative nonfiction, fiction, and poetry. Classes are taught by instructors and MFA candidates from the University of Memphis, which sponsors the Pinch.
