4-Week Critique Workshop!
Check our Schedule page for dates
Writing is such an isolating activity! And yet we write for community and to connect. When I spend a long time by myself with a manuscript, it’s helpful to remind myself that though I write on my own, I’m far from alone.
When we view our writing through someone else’s eyes, it takes on new meaning and dimension. A group workshop provides the chance to make sure we are communicating our intentions clearly, to brainstorm new ideas, and to learn from each other’s writing.
If you have pages you’ve been working on that just aren’t coming together, if you are stuck in the middle of a draft, or if you need readers and a fresh perspective in order to take the next step in revision, join us in our 4-week feedback-oriented workshop.
This writing and critique workshop is open to writers of all genres and all levels. You’ll write new pages, share and read other writers’ works-in-progress, and practice new writing techniques. You’ll feel encouraged, learn to look at your work with fresh eyes, and produce new writing. You’ll receive and provide feedback on what is working and what can be improved, based on each writer’s needs and on a critique level of their choosing. We’ll look at examples of great writers, do in-class writing prompts, and talk about narrative elements such as characterization, setting, dialogue, and scene-building.
Bring in any type of writing–a story or chapter of a novel or memoir you’ve been working on for a while, a poem you wrote last week, a screenplay you’re tweaking. We look forward to reading your work!
