Each group offers participants motivation, personalized instruction on craft, and a small supportive community (6 participants max). Come to the first meeting (and every meeting) with 2-4 pages of something brand new or revised to share for verbal feedback. Our goal is to meet every draft where it is at, and help you write forward productively and with confidence. Pre-registration is required.

One of the most productive things we can do as writers is shed our fears and share our efforts. To that end, this gathering of about 20 writers offers a weekend of interactive workshops, quality instruction, and no Power Point presentations. Our prompt sessions provide a crash course on narrative craft. Our workshops on “Fast Feedback” and “Maniacal Editing” and other issues offer tips for productive revision every draft of the way. Plus, our “Open Mic Openings” event gives you the opportunity to read aloud for appreciation, feedback and instruction. Come. Write. And learn from our collective wisdom. Newbies and seasoned authors welcome. Please leave all self doubts at the door. To confirm your participation or request more info: email
