UTV Master Classes
January 12-28, 2024
While specific master classes differ slightly in format, they share a common goal: to offer highly motivated writers an intensely sympathetic reading of their work, with strategic suggestions for revision. We encourage all participants to respond to each other’s work and to each other in the same spirit.
Registration for all master classes is limited to 8. Groups meet three times a week for a total of six 3-hour sessions. You will also meet at least once one-to-one with your instructor.

with Jennifer Clement
This workshop is based on Gustave Flaubert’s sense that a writer can imagine anything. It is often in the confluence of contradiction, found in metaphor and simile, where the most profound human experiences can be found. Fiction writers who also write poetry, as well as poets who also write fiction, are particularly welcome.
Writing of Witness
Great teaching meets committed writers–it’s an unbeatable combination!
I have never felt so supported to achieve what I want. I “leave” this experience with my heart filled with joy, with my brain like a Christmas tree, full of new ideas, and with a sense that I have finally met my tribe.
UTV fue un detonador de ideas y conexiones. Llegué con una idea y volví a casa con la tercera parte de un libro.
“When I was feeling overwhelmed at the sheer talent and accomplishments of the faculty, a fellow writing student said to me, “The only difference between them and us is time.”
“UTV is more than a learning experience set against a powerful landscape… it offers a mental space for creativity.”
