Each week writers are given 20 minutes for spontaneous writing using provided prompts, followed by an opportunity to read their work and receive positive only reinforcement and encouragement. The facilitator writes and reads aloud, along with the other participants. All work produced in the writing workshop is treated as fiction to minimize the personal vulnerability of the writer.

Description

The Saturday morning creative writing group is based on the belief that every person is a writer and strives to provide a safe environment where writers at all levels of experience can experiment, learn, and develop craft. Each week writers are given 20 minutes for spontaneous writing using provided prompts, followed by an opportunity to read their work and receive positive-only reinforcement and encouragement. The facilitator writes and reads aloud, along with the other participants. All work produced in the writing workshop is treated as fiction to minimize the personal vulnerability of the writer.

This workshop meets 2 hours weekly for ten weeks in the fall, winter, and spring. Class size is limited.

This class will meet in Lancaster.

Rich Marcello is the author of five novels, The Color of Home, The Big Wide Calm, The Beauty of the Fall, The Latecomers, and Cenotaphs, and the poetry collection, The Long Body That Connects Us All. He also teaches creative writing at Seven Bridge Writers’ Collaborative. Previously, he enjoyed a successful career as a technology executive, managing several multi-billion dollar businesses for Fortune 500 companies. As anyone who has read Rich’s work can tell you, his books deal with life’s big questions: love, loss, creativity, community, self-discovery and forgiveness. His novels are rich with characters and ideas, crafted by a natural storyteller, with the eye and the ear of a poet. For Rich, writing and art-making is about connection, or as he says, about making a difference to a least one other person in the world, something he has clearly achieved many times over, both as an artist, a mentor, and a teacher. Rich lives in Massachusetts with his wife and Newfoundland Shaman. He is currently working on his sixth and seventh novels, The Means of Keeping and In the Seat of the Eddas, a follow-on to The Latecomers.
