Here are some of the folks who, having read this book and attended workshops with Cary, are now offering Finishing School workshops of their own. Get in touch … Or start one yourself! All you need is the book and a place to gather.–Cary T.

Ron Seybold of Austin, Texas, offers Finishing School workshops out of his writing and coaching studio in Austin’s Barrington Oaks neighborhood. Like Cary, Ron is a trained and certified Amherst Writers and Artists workshop leader. He’s a lot of other things too — an editor, a novelist, a writing coach, and founder of The Writers Workshop. Learn more about Ron here. 

Janine Kovac and Tarja Parssinen lead Finishing School workshops in the beautiful co-working and business incubation space in Mill Valley, California called The Hivery. Janine is the author of Spinning: Choreography for Coming Home, a mother’s memoir about ballet, cognitive science and raising radically  premature twins. Tarja is a writer and performer who has written for the Washington Post, and many other publications. Together they lead Moxie Road, a consultancy and workshop collective dedicated to guiding women through the complex process of literary creation. As they say, “Ideas are easy. The hard part is turning an idea into an actual product–an essay, a book proposal, a memoir, a storytelling performance.”
