For Immediate Release


Dzanc Books Introduces the Dzanc Sessions: Online Writing Workshops 


September 30, 2011 (Ann Arbor, MI)--Dzanc Books is pleased to announce our newest writing workshops.  The Dzanc Sessions are designed for writers who are ready to amplify, polish, and advance their writing. An eclectic platform of craft-based workshops are offered in a series of online sessions throughout the year, with specializations in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and screenwriting. The Dzanc Sessions are an extended form of Dzanc's current one-on-one mentoring program which, in the last year alone, has enabled Dzanc students to have their works published in dozens of leading journals, including PANK, The North American Review, The Citron Review, and many others.   Dzanc instructors including Meg Pokrass, Amy Minton, Janet Freeman, Yelizaveta P. Renfro, Robert Lopez, Gail Konop Baker, and others have taught workshops both independently and through universities and have published many widely praised books, as well as seen their work included in Best of the Web, the Wigleaf Top 50, and Best American Essays.


The initial sessions will debut in October: a slate of six workshops are led by award-winning literary artists who are committed to engaging deeply with your work. In these classes, both beginning and experienced writers will find opportunities to strengthen their writing, to approach it from new angles, and to grow as confident and skilled creators. In each workshop, writers will receive detailed feedback on multiple drafts of their writing.


The sessions will begin the week of October 16. Each class spans eight or ten weeks. The content of the class is the same regardless of the time span; it is merely accelerated in the eight-week version. Eight-week Session One classes run through the week of December 4. Ten-week classes run through the week of December 18.


The price for workshops is $325 and can be paid through PayPal. The cost also includes a three-month membership to the Dzanc Books eBook Club. (Or, if you do not have an e-reader, you can select a free copy of any print title from Dzanc Books.) The bulk of registration fees support the non-profit work of Dzanc Books. A portion of it supports the work of the instructors and the administration of the Dzanc Sessions.


More specific details as well as individual course descriptions can be found at the Dzanc Books website at and questions can be sent to the Dzanc Sessions Administrator, Anna Clark at .
