For beginners to published authors, the All Writing workshop focuses on quieting your internal critic to express yourself freely. The facilitator structures the approach to writing and the discussion to ensure that everyone in the workshop feels included and at ease.
A workshop for writers of all levels

- Discover or develop your voice
- Gain confidence in your identity as a writer

Fiction · Nonfiction · Poetry · Screen & TV Writing · Playwriting · Blogs · Performance Sketches
This workshop emphasizes writing to prompts
- The prompts are designed to inspire you, to get you started
- Following the prompts is optional
- No competition, no ridicule
- No homework
To ensure quality, enrollment is limited to 12 including the facilitator, Rachel Kobin.
Note: If I can find an outdoor location (like a deck) within easy travel distance of everyone who enrolls, I will gladly lead the workshop there. Please contact me if you know of such a place.

- Willingness to sign a form saying you are symptom-free, and a waiver recognizing you are taking a risk by meeting in a group. Masks are worn in the hallways and bathrooms of The Resiliency Center, but not in the workshop space. Clean air circulation and sanitization occur continuously.
Zoom tech requirements:
- Although we write by hand in an old-fashioned notebook, you will need a computer or laptop with a video camera and audio so that you can be seen and heard. You’ll also need to be in a private space or use headphones/earbuds so that when people read aloud, people in your household won’t be able to hear.
- Download Zoom from Zoom.us — it’s free for you.
