I led an interactive writing retreat, “Writing from Real Life,” at Easton Mountain retreat center for gay and bi men in Upstate NY, November 18-20, 2022. Watch this space for upcoming retreats.
During COVID-19, I am teaching most of my courses online via Zoom, for Grubstreet.org, where I’ve been an instructor since 2007, for Literary Cleveland, for the Alexandra Writers’ Centre in Calgary, the Skirball Writers Center at South Euclid-Lyndhurst Public Library in suburban Cleveland, and at the Medford (MA) Public Library.
I’m also teaching some in-person classes at GrubStreet’s new headquarters in Boston’s Seaport District. Check out Grub’s upcoming courses at grubstreet.org
I also work with writers one-one, specializing in memoir, personal essays, and other forms of nonfiction writing. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 617-412-7707 for more information.
“Writing from Real Life” and other workshops–student comments:
Judah is a perfect facilitator and he really knows the importance of positive feedback and encouragement. He goes out of his way to find something good to say about each person’s work.
–Gianni Caminiti, Lawyer, Plainfield, NJ
I strongly recommend Judah’s workshop to everyone interested in self-exploration. The writing assignments were like journals into the souls of writers. They liberated us. I honestly did not expect self-discovery as an outcome of this writing workshop but I found that and much more. Ending the workshop with 21 topics to write from was ingenious. Talk about adding fuel to the newly ignited fire. BRAVO!!
–Rick Cook, Public Health consultant, Albany, NY
Judah Leblang’s ‘Writing from Real Life’ workshop is a brilliant blend of presentation, discussion and time for writing. This trifecta of ingredients results in a perfect blend of information, inspiration, and encouragement. Whether a newbie or seasoned writer, there’s something for everyone in Judah’s writing workshop. I came away inspired and with 3 new pieces of writing to jumpstart additional stories. Thank you, Judah!
