Enrollment: Requires a minimum of 5 and limited to a maximum of 10 attendees.
This workshop offers a relaxed setting for writers of all interests and levels. Attendees will discuss each other’s writings and offer suggestions for mining memories, maintaining a journal, and adding music and mystery to both prose and poetry. Whether you would like to delve into family history, memoir, or fantasy, or discover new formats, this workshop can help. Sharing your drafts with peers and listening to their reactions is a proven road to more effective writing. In this small group you will never feel overwhelmed or overlooked, and you will meet new friends whose lively company you will enjoy. For the initial session, please be prepared to share an example of your work with the other participants – up to two pages for poetry, three pages for prose.
