Let me say a few words about Jayne. I took a class with Jayne, and I was lucky—inclement weather kept everyone else away. She gave me a whole new perspective on what I was doing. Her enthusiasm was contagious, and her love for her craft made her a great teacher.
I had to share her subsequently, and every class was a revelation.
— Eleanor Windman
Jayne listens incisively, responding with clear and targeted feedback. She guides with conviction about form and voice, honed by decades of deep reading and writing. And she is sensitive to the individual student— knowing when to nudge, when to step back, when to get specific, when to demand more. Finally, she is a brilliant editor!

New workshops starting Fall 2020!
Writing & Performing the Monologue
Six Friday mornings, 9 AM – noon
A program of the Berkshire Writers Project ®
Accessing an interior life, and giving voice to that life in a way
an audience can believe it, is the art of the monologue. In this
workshop, you will listen to and practice writing the kind of
monologues that you would like to speak in front of your ideal
audience; revise your monologue with guidance; rehearse; and
perform it at The FOUNDRY. A perfect workshop for writers
using the first person in fiction, theater and creative
nonfiction. This workshop accepts a maximum of
six writers; we will work six feet apart.
