Also, By demand, we will be launching writer's workshops starting in August for interested writers.
Similar to our popular storytelling workshops, our writer's workshop is specifically for interested writers who are looking to launch a writing career, improve their writing skills, receive feedback from a professional writer and teacher, develop a work in progress, prepare a non-fiction pitch, or simply find an engaged audience who is willing to listen and provide feedback for their work.
Whether you want to make your fortune writing the next great American novel or simply improve your ability to string together coherent sentences, this may be for you. We've modeled our workshop on a series of successful workshops conducted by a fellow author and friend who works on the Connecticut shoreline.
The workshops will be held in our home. We'll put out snacks and drinks each week before food is good for thought and makes people happy.
We'll keep the group small, 4-6 writers per six week session, so we can be sure to devote the appropriate amount of time on each writer's work while also having time to teach mini-lessons and model good writing.
Workshops will run from 8:00-9:30 on Monday evenings.
Dates for our first session are August 11, 18, 25 and September 8, 15 and 22.
The cost of each 6 week session will be $175.
If you're interested in joining us, please let me know.
Hope to see you all at Speak Up soon!
