workshops with Reuben Jackson. The last course she took with Jackson, who now resides in Vermont, began three weeks after Rainey’s teenaged nephew committed suicide. “That class of nine people was a gift of survival for me,” Rainey says. “The love in that classroom was tangible. Reuben led the love and allowed it to flourish.” Whether you meet one new friend, a handful of others with whom to launch a writer’s group, or simply enjoy the camaraderie of a workshop in the moment, everyone who takes a workshop at TWC can expect to get more than you pay for; you can expect a writing community.
