Ground Your Writing in the Physical World
In this workshop, you will learn to create an image vocabulary. Through a series of prompts and exercises, we’ll practice drawing on that image vocabulary to write descriptive prose without flowery language. Writers of all genres are welcome and will benefit from this class.Taught by Sara Blackthorne.
Wed Aug 31 9:30am – 12:30pm
Anything but Empty
Writers find inspiration anywhere. In this class, we’ll use song lyrics from singer-songwriters as prompts for writing. Fiction and nonfiction writers welcome. We will write, share, and walk away with several bits of fresh writing. The title of this workshop comes from the Sara Bareilles song, “Brave.” Open to all writers. Taught by Meg Weber
Thurs Sept 1 9:30am – 12:30pm
Re-Visioning Your Words
So you’ve got some writing, (maybe from the workshop on Tuesday or Wednesday?!) and you want to take it to the next level. Together we’ll explore tools for re-visioning your writing, and experiment with ways to enliven and communicate exactly what you intend. Taught by Meg Weber
