Pardon our blog under construction

Friends and Writers:

It has come to my attention that subscribers are no longer getting notifications from this blog. I am hard at work on a new blog through another provider that I expect will be more stable. Pardon the proverbial dust as I get it put together. I expect to launch the blog by mid-February, and will post ample info here when that's ready. 

In the meantime: If you are interested in doing some writing along with receiving manuscript critique in the coming weeks, consider joining me and a great, intimate group of writers on Friday afternoons for my next private workshop. Full details below.

More soon!

Yours in writing,

Kate Asche


The Art of Recklessness (Generative Writing and Critique Workshop)

Fridays, 4:00-6:30 p.m. ~ February 24 – March 30 (5 meetings / no class March 2)
Text: The Art of Recklessness by Dean Young

To request a registration form and/or get your questions answered, please contact Kate Asche at

Join Kate Asche this winter in a very intimate Amherst Writers and Artists (AWA) writing and critique workshop. Class size is strictly limited to seven writers plus facilitator. Participants may submit up to 15 pages of prose and up to 8 pages of poetry (or some combo of the two, not to exceed 12 pages) per session.

Every class meeting will begin with time to snack and socialize about what’s going on in our writing and our lives. At our first class meeting for each session, we will do some writing, as well as establish a manuscript workshop schedule and exchange manuscripts (in keeping with AWA philosophy, the facilitator will also participate). In each subsequent meeting, we’ll enjoy a brief discussion of that week’s craft book reading selection, to be read in advance. Next, we’ll write and then respond to each other’s just-written work. We'll then workshop two manuscripts, spending at least 30 minutes on each. This workshop will be facilitated in the AWA method, in which all shared writing is treated with respect and honor. The focus is on the writing itself, and the writer will learn what is strong, what is memorable, and what people admire in his/her first-draft work and manuscript submission, as well as receive supportive feedback and strategies for continued work on the submitted manuscript.

Time and Location: We will write together at the ThinkHouse Collective (1726 11th Street, Sacramento) on Friday afternoons, 4:00-6:30 p.m. If you want to participate but cannot arrive promptly at 4:00, please let me know. Permission for late arrival may be granted at Instructor’s discretion, but no discount or make-up instruction will be given for time missed. 

Workshop Cost and Payment Due Date: $195. Payment is due at the time of registration and must be submitted with registration form.
