A detailed description of how it works:

In this creative writing workshop, we write together during the first half of the three hours. The facilitator uses prompts and exercises designed to spark your imagination. Then, most participants choose to read what they just wrote aloud. The group listens and offers feedback about what stood out and what they found memorable about the writing. At this point, listeners provide only positive feedback because no one has had a chance to edit.

After a short break, the facilitator makes announcements, and we discuss writing concerns we all share. In the last hour or so, we discuss manuscripts polished by workshop members on their own time. These conversations occur according to a schedule agreed upon by the group.

The setting is supportive and encourages experimentation with all aspects of writing. The workshop lets you explore and strengthen your voice, find stories or topics you want to write about and develop these pieces with constructive feedback from other writers.

Following the prompts is optional. You are always free to write about whatever you’d like, including something you’re currently writing.

Submitting a manuscript is also optional. Sometimes people come to the workshop with nothing they want to submit. Then a piece they write during the workshop becomes the work they choose to expand on and hand in.
