The final 2019 summer writing workshop, Apart, and Yet a Part: A Week with Writing Coach Michael N. McGregor, recently wrapped up at the Collegeville Institute. Unlike other workshops, participants spent most of their time working independently on projects and met with a writing coach as needed. They did gather for several evening sessions and to share meals.
When asked to evaluate writing coach Michael N. McGregor, one participant wrote: “I have been in a lot of writing workshops and worked with a lot of mentors over the years – Michael is absolutely one of the best.” Another writer reflected on their experience: “The rhythm of being alone and together is exactly what I need to keep my writing alive and deepening. I’m going to see how I can create that kind of rhythm at home.”
