About Our One on One Workshops
The Eckleburg Workshops offer online fiction, poetry, nonfiction, novel, screenwriting and other workshops. We are a diverse community and give priority to individual voices in innovative, traditional and mixed aesthetics. Most noteworthy, we offer an augmentation to MA, MFA and PhD programs. Subsequently, our students compose both MFA graduates and self-taught writers. Our diverse writers inform each other, bringing global awareness and a depth of aesthetics.
Our Diverse Writing Population
Most of all, we value dedication to bettering craft with a focus on storytelling at whatever point the writer is, formerly trained or not. We quickly identify areas of strengths and needs and help writers value and grow their own crafts. Diversity of voice and experience is primary to our mission: gender, ethnic, sexuality and otherwise. We value and welcome voices from every facet of the human experience with a focus on authentic and culturally responsible storytelling. We do not flinch, but we do strategically omit gratuitous content. Gender, sex and violence are welcome discourses at The Eckleburg Workshops, as long as they speak toward critical, political and social explorations.
We do have many returning students. Primarily, we want to support our writers in the way they want to be supported. Some of our writers find that one or two courses gives them the jolt they need, while others return month after month for the community and continual craft support.
The Eckleburg Scholarship
The Eckleburg Scholarship began in 2015. This award is open to outstanding student scholars currently enrolled within a university graduate writing program and also are in pursuit of artistic aesthetic innovation in both the U.S. and international communities.
Whatever your writing focuses and needs, we are here to work with you. Subsequently, we promise to help you find and value your authentic voice. If you have questions, please contact us. We look forward to working with you.
