Do you know what you want to say but can’t seem to find a way to say it? Or are you looking for effective ways to develop those ideas or sketches in your notebooks or journals? Do you sense that your writing is complete but not “finished”? This Thursday evening creative writing group is designed for writers who want to develop the tools they need for their own projects. The group produces writing shared in a workshop setting generated by in-group and at-home prompts. Examples of exercises include those that focus on point of view, description, rhythm and texture, voice and dialogue, working with the senses, character description, and exposition. The workshop is open to writers on any level. While positive feedback is given, constructive feedback is also solicited and expected.
This workshop meets 2 hours weekly for ten weeks in the fall and ten in the winter and spring. Class size is limited.
