A Note From Max:

In this fraught, powerful and uncertain time, as we deal with both the Health Crisis of the COVID19/ Coronavirus on a global, national, state and local level, as well as the deep calling for racial justice, we at Hollowdeck Press are committed to offering classes and lectures that might support, comfort, inspire and connect the members of our writing community. We will be offering these in on-line formats, in a range of different subjects.  Creativity and writing can be vital life lines as we move through these personal, national and global changes together. As a teacher, editor and writing coach I have never and will never turn away any writer due to an inability to pay. If you are one of the many folks whose income and work have been severely impacted by any of these events please reach out to me and I will find a way to support you. 
Be well, I’m sending love and gentleness to you and yours.

Don’t Stop Writing!

How long have you loved to write? 

bookstiedq1For over 30 years Max Regan, MFA founder of Hollowdeck Press LLC has worked as a writer, teacher, Developmental/ Content Editor and community resource for those who love to write. He works individually with writers, poets, novelists, memoirists, performance artists and screenwriters to support them in bringing their work to life. In on-line formats and in cities all over the country he has created Sustainable Writing Guilds working with a diverse range of people who are dedicated to the art of living as well as the art of writing.

Writing is a practice as well as a craft and we encourage each individual to uncover the wisdom imbedded in their own imagination and experience. Writers must be willing to write in response to and in conversation with the world around them and to find the unique work that honors their own voice. We believe that fearlessness, honesty, community, hard work and a big whopping sense of humor are the things that sustain the writing life. Life is way too short to not write what wants and needs to be written.

Hollowdeck Writing Classes

Hollowdeck Press LLC offers Writing Classes and Events for working writers at any level of experience, living around the world. We have members in our on-line community writing guilds from the US, Europe, the Caribbean, Asia, Australia and South America. These communities are committed to awakening the curiosity and passion of those who love to write, creating honest, skillful and non-competitive learning environments where writers support one another in bringing their work to life. The foundation of these grassroots writing guilds is our desire to meet you where you are as a writer.

We engage writers working in any genre: from memoirs to stories, novels to experimental texts and full manuscripts to the single, well-crafted poem and we offer a variety of classes: For writers who want an affordable lecture-style or one-day class we offer monthly on-line Book Lectures as well as monthly 1-day on-line Writing Craft classes.

For anyone interested in building a regular writing practice we offer 10-Day Bootcamp Classes in which writers generate 1000-words a day, as well as 11-Week Beyond Bootcamp Classes in which writers generate up to 2000 words a week. Both styles of Bootcamp classes are conducted by email.

For writers who need a longer, genre-specific workshop-style class that invites you to share on-going work with your peers, we offer 6-Week On-line Workshops in Poetry, Fiction and Narrative Non-Fiction/ Memoir.

If you need an intensive or retreat experience, we offer an on-line 4-day Writing Project Intensive in January of each year as well as an on-line 10-day Writing Project Intensive in June of each year. If you need our help in setting up a Solo Writing Retreat customized with editorial support and teaching that would meet your individual needs please just drop Max an email.

Max also offers private coaching sessions all year long for writers who prefer to work one-on-one and content editing for those preparing manuscripts and texts for publication.

To find out which classes are being offered this month contact Max to join our mailing list to sign up for the monthly newsletter. Our mailing list is never used for anything other than Hollowdeck and literary arts notices, and, needless to say, it is never for sale.

For writers who love in person classes or who have a passion for travel, we are looking forward to the time when we will once again be able to host in-person classes in the Boulder Guild, The Maryland Guild and the Texas Guild. We are also looking forward offering Private Retreats again as well as our annual two-week writing journeys to the city of Prague in the Czech Republic, and to the island of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. When it becomes safe to gather and to travel we will happily add these events back to our schedule!

Making Tuition Payments: If you are signed up for a class or event and using a credit card (for any amount) is the easiest way for you to pay, then simply follow the instructions below to pay by Pay Pal. But if you are comfortable paying with either a credit card or a check then we ask that you use Pay Pal for any tuition amount under $250 and use a check for any amount over $250. To pay by check make checks payable to max regan and sent to 1006 grandview ave, boulder, co 80302

Tuition varies depending on the class, but we are always welcoming new students into our community, so class rosters often fill quickly. We are committed to serving our students by creating no-interest, flexible payment plans. Students can arrange payment plans directly with Max. Sorry but classes cannot be pro-rated.
