This one-day creative writing workshop focuses on creating new material using writing prompts. This workshop is a fun and effective creative jump-start. Writers can also workshop current projects and get supportive, constructive critique from a qualified group leader and from fellow attendees. This is also a great way to get a taste of our multiple-week writers groups. This workshop is open to writers of all genres and levels – it works for everyone!

MORNING: The morning will consist of several improvisational writing exercises where you will get into that creative flow and create new work and have an opportunity to read what you wrote.
LUNCH: Then we will break for lunch. To keep costs low, we ask that you bring your own sack lunch.
