Is your New Year’s Resolution to wrap up that writing project you put on hold when the holidays hit?  Have an idea you’ve been meaning to get started on, but haven’t gotten around to?  Need a little push from a classroom structure to get you going?  Appreciate feedback from other motivated writers, and from a professional instructor?  Here’s your answer!  Whether you’re working on memoir, essay, kids’ fiction, humor — or anything else — Winter Writers Workshop is perfect for you.

Hank Herman is the author of Accept My Kid, Please! A Dad’s Descent Into College Application Hell, an acclaimed memoir, and Super Hoops, a series of basketball novels for kids.  His award-winning humor column “The Home Team” has been running for more than 20 years and is still going strong.  Hank also co-writes the Hearst Newspapers blog “Beagle Man,” alternating posts with his dog, Kemba.  The blog doubles as a hilarious travelogue when Hank and Kemba hit the road every fall for their great adventure: a one-month-long cross-country road trip!  Hank also leads writing workshops at his alma mater, the University of Pennsylvania, and at Trinity College and Norwalk Community College.
