Hope Edelman - Visiting Instructor

Hope Edelman - Visiting Instructor

Hope has been a personal friend for twenty years. She was one of the first writers who agreed to blurb my first book and this was a huge moment as I respected the Hope's work so much. Since that time, I've been lucky to teach for her and with her.  Now it's my great joy to offer her a space in The Studio.  

Hope joined us for a three day workshop The Story Beneath the Story in June.  Writers learned how to differentiate the action from meaning within their story and how to bring that meaning to the reader.  

To study with Hope is an incredible experience.  She's a wonderful, kind, compassionate teacher who is also so knowledgeable about form.  She will be back with us soon!  Keep an eye on this site and page for updates.

Hope has published seven nonfiction books, including the bestsellers Motherless Daughters, Motherless Mothers, and The Possibility of Everything. Her articles and essays have appeared in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, Real Simple, Glamour, Self, Parade,, Writer's Digest, and the Huffington Post, as well as in numerous anthologies.  In 2012, she was inducted into the Medill Hall of Achievement at Northwestern University, her undergraduate alma mater, and in 2014 she was named an Alumni Fellow at the University of Iowa, where she attended graduate school. Hope has taught at Antioch University-LA, University of North Carolina at Wilmington, Ohio State University, Northwestern University, and the University of Iowa, and leads workshops every July at the Iowa Summer Writing Festival.
