Workshops beginning September 6 and September 7, 2016

Maintaining the Practice
For writers who have some experience
6 weeks, 2.5 hours per week
Class size: 6-10 students

Sometimes a writer needs to meet regularly with other writers to maintain the discipline of writing regularly. Sound like you? Then this is the workshop for you. Each week, you’ll receive an assignment – a writing prompt to fire up your creativity and advance your skill. You’ll take it home, complete it, and return the following week to share what you’ve written. You’ll also develop your skill in giving critique and taking it, because examination and discussion of your writing – both what works and what needs work – is a valuable tool to help you become a better writer. Some in-class writing may be done if time allows. This workshop is an extension of the Buffing up on Basics workshop. Completing Buffing up on Basics prior to taking this workshop isn’t necessary.
