Richard teaches an 8-week introductory workshop in fiction, poetry, and creative nonfiction at the Writers Studio Tucson. His next workshop begins Saturday, July 20, 2019. More information and registration here.

I started attending the Writers Studio Tucson workshop taught by Lela Scott MacNeil in April 2016, then moved on to Phil Ivory’s Intermediate workshops and Janelle Drumwright’s Advanced workshop. I now regularly attend Director Reneé Bibby’s Master workshops. I began teaching workshop in April 2019. The instructors are talented published writers who also happen to be fantastic teachers, and I’m excited to be on the team so that I can share with new students the same joy and encouragement I received along the way.

The Writers Studio also offers workshops and crafts classes in New York City—where the school was founded by poet Philip Schultz in 1987—and in Hudson Valley and San Francisco. We also offer online courses you can take from anywhere! Check here for a full list of courses.
