Ansary leads two memoir writing workshops:
Life/Story is an intensive six-week workshop for writers working on memoirs. The workshop is limited to five participants and meets every other week. Ansary runs two of these groups concurrently: one group meets on Tuesday evenings, the other on Sunday afternoons. Writers share their work electronically beforehand, by email (or via some other platform) and discuss their work at two-hour weekly meetings. The six-week workshop costs $350. For details, go here.
Occasionally, Ansary does one-on-one consultation, coaching, book-doctoring, or editing. Arrangements vary, depending on circumstances and schedule, both the client’s and Ansary’s. Writers in need of advice may arrange to send pages to Ansary to read and then meet with him for a personal consultation; or consult with him by Skype; or work with him online. Currently, his time is completely booked.
$40/hour: reading and consultation.
$50/hour: manuscript line editing & copy editing.
Payment may also be worked out on a per page or a per project basis. For more information, call 415-648-8370.
