Writing Intensive Workshop, Beginners

At this writing workshop all levels are welcome – you work at your pace. I offer personal attention to every participant during the workshop and a free followup consultation afterward, by phone, email, or in person, if feasible.

WHAT: A full day (8 hours) of writing instruction in a very small group (limited to six participants).
You’ll learn everything from unlocking the writer within, the six key elements of winning creative non-fiction (or personal essays)to understanding the all-important narrative arc, how to shape it, how to cultivate your voice (or voices!) and the delicate art of self-editing. You will write, write, write, and leave inspired.

WHEN: JAN 22, 2012, 10 am to 6pm – Lunch provided (dietary restrictions honored) no extra cost.

More details: We’ll start right in writing, then discussing briefly a reasonable goal. We’ll cover “Six Key Elements” of a winning story. Do you know what they are? I’ll give you writing exercises. But more importantly we’ll focus on what you hope to achieve with your writing, anything from private satisfaction and self therapy to getting published and writing the great American novel. We’ll pace ourselves with breaks and read others’ works. We’ll breathe and relax at intervals.
