Each evening runs from 7:00 – 10:00 PM
Each Tuesday night, we write together to prompts designed to spark your imagination and get you started. Those who wish to read aloud and receive feedback about what stood out to us and what we found good and strong about the writing (no negative feedback about work written during workshop time). Reading aloud is followed by a short break, which includes snacks to revive us. Then the facilitator and the participants answer questions and discuss writing concerns we all share. In the last hour or so, we discuss manuscripts polished by workshop members on their own time according to a schedule agreed on during the first evening of the session.
The setting is supportive, encouraging 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 positive 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 and then a piece they write during the workshop becomes the work they choose to expand on their own and submit.

Worried about signing up because you know you’ll be away for one or two nights? I do have substitutes who may be able to take your place for that evening. I explain how this works on the first night of the workshop, but if you know in advance, contact me so that I can help you find someone. The substitute pays for the night you miss.
If you’re writing a novel, screenplay, TV Pilot, play, a collection of poetry or short stories, or a memoir and you’re looking for a more in-depth workshop experience, the Manuscript Workshop may be the right place for you. We meet at The Resiliency Center in Flourtown on Thursdays from 7-10 p.m. Writing sample and invitation required. Learn more.
