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!
-Max

How long have you loved to write? 

bookstiedq1For over 25 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 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. We believe that life is way too short to not write what wants and needs to be written.

Hollowdeck Writing Guilds

Hollowdeck Press LLC sponsors Writing Guilds for working writers in Boulder, Colorado, the East Coast and Houston, Texas. 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 offer a variety of classes: on-going weekly classes, weekend classes, one-day classes, free classes, intensive labs, visiting artist seminars, on-line distance workshops and museum classes. We engage writers working in any genre: from memoirs to stories, novels to experimental texts and full manuscripts to the single, well-crafted poem. Max also offers private coaching sessions for writers who prefer to work one-on-one and content editing for those preparing manuscripts and texts for publication. For writers who have a passion for travel, we offer 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.

If you would like to be added to or removed from our mailing and email list, please contact us. Our mailing list is never used for anything other than Hollowdeck and literary arts notices, and, needless to say, it is never for sale.
