Steven Dunn's Published Work

Steven is an incredible instructor with a talent for facilitating powerful conversations about how and why we can show up for one another as writers in a workshop. His workshops lift, celebrate, and question the work without falling into blanket criticism or cruelty. After workshopping, I found myself inspired to work on and revise my submitted piece, rather than feeling demoralized or like I had to start over. Steven does a great job running a workshop with space for everyone to learn how to be and do better.
