There will be stories, there will be snacks. We will help you discover your voice, hone your talents, and become the next Oliver Sacks.
Just kidding about the last one. Or maybe not. We weren't kidding about the snacks though.
There is no writing experience necessary. Simply bring your humanity, your ideas, something to write with, and your sense of humor.
What will we do together?
Find your Voice
Writing is hard--finding your voice is even harder. We will work on making you sound as good as you possibly can on the page. The point is to make you more you (on your best day). Whether you're writing fiction, poetry, non-fiction or just want to create moving and beautiful grocery lists. We will do this with guided writing, discussion and themed workshops on different elements of good writing.
hone your craft
By writing and reading carefully, and paying attention to our discussions on craft, you will improve your narrative skills. We will have plenty of time to write and you will learn tips and tricks for continuing to improve on your own. Elements of writing and the writing life we will cover: voice, tone, structure, creative research, ethics, publishing.
Writing isn't just hard, it's often lonely. A group of like-minded folks to hold you accountable to your dreams can make all the difference. We will be this for one another. We will critique each other's work in the kindest, most effective ways possible and help one another stay motivated.
You are free to bring work you have already started or begin anew every workshop.
