You may be wondering which nonfiction class would be right for you this winter. Let us help! (See also "Which Fiction Class Should I Take This Winter?")
NEW CLASS ALERT: If you want to pitch and write for online venues from Eater LA to The Atlantic, Zan Romanoff is here to show you how! Her workshop Writing for the Internet: How to Pitch, Publish, and Get Paid starts February 12 in Hancock Park.
If you have a nonfiction narrative you'd like to share but you're not sure yet which form it should take—or if you'd simply like to experiment—we'd recommend All the Nonfiction Genres with Summer Block starting February 19 in Burbank.
If you’re ready to dive further into a memoir idea, we'd recommend Memoir I with Seth Fischer starting February 21 in Miracle Mile. If you already have a memoir draft underway, Erica Garza’s Memoir II workshop starts February 20 in Glendale.
If you have completed a memoir and you’re ready to get feedback on the entire manuscript, you could sign up for Diana Wagman's Revising Your Manuscript workshop, starting February 10 in Echo Park.
If you write any form of nonfiction and you'd prefer a class on the westside of Los Angeles, we’d recommend Westside Nonfiction with Lisa Fetchko starting February 13 in Mar Vista.
If you’d like to take an online class this winter, you can choose from Healing Through Writing and the Creative Process with Francesca Lia Block starting February 24, Bring It—How to Add Conflict to Your Story with Joshua Mohr on March 2 and 9, Writing About Music with Chris L. Terry on March 16 and 23, Websites for Writers with Chris Daley on March 23 and April 6, or Organizing Your Writing with Scrivener with Neelanjana Banerjee on April 6 and 20.

(If you’re looking for a break from nonfiction, we also have a one-evening seminar at Book Show in Highland Park: Lyricism from Chaos—Writing Social Justice Poetry with Xochitl-Julisa Bermejo.)
