10-Week Generative & Community Building Summer Writing Workshop (with Kate Senecal)
This workshop is perfect for any writer at any stage of the process. Each week we will meet to write together. Each week will feature a new set of prompts; however, if writers want to use the time on other work they're already invested in they are encouraged to do so. After writing, participants will share work aloud if moved to do so. The group will provide on-the-spot, encouraging verbal feedback. This class is not genre- or craft-focused but rather centered around community building and ensuring that writers are able to make time for their creative work in a world that does not make that easy!
