9 Weeks, 9 Writers: workshop in prose and poetry
This workshop is designed for writers who want to understand more deeply their own gifts and challenges and use that knowledge to elevate the level of their work.
We will focus on elements of craft as they pertain to the mission of each writer—most certainly voice, language and structure. We will also address revision and look at several examples of poems and essays in their draft and revised forms. In this place of collaborative learning, where some of us write poetry and some prose, we will learn from artists who are doing something different than we are and let their practices influence our work.
We will spend some of our time together writing as well as send work to each other in advance of each meeting. For those who would like to write to an assignment, I will assign short pieces each week; however, each writer has the option to continue work on a project of her own devising regardless of any assignment.
I do not screen writers for this workshop. I invite you to self-select by considering the place of writing in your life and whether you are writing on a regular basis or committed to a re-start. The number of writers for this particular workshop will be limited to nine.
Thursday evenings, 7-9 PM, April 5 – May 31, 2018, Housatonic, MA
9 sessions, $405
