Description

For all those looking for a practical, hands-on workshop of generative prompts to get your wheels turning, your creative engine humming, and new projects out of the blocks. Limited to 12 participants.

Your creative engine needs maintenance and the “Writer’s Tune-up” will put writing back on the front burner through a variety of engaging prompts and exercises intended to spark, re-invigorate, and inspire. You’ll improve the impact and depth of your work through practice, uncover new ideas, and share with your peers. Each session will include prompts, discussions, and feedback in a playful and supportive atmosphere.

This workshop is designed for writing with more curiosity and less struggle. This will be part workshop, part discussion group, and part writing exercises; participants will harness the tools and techniques for mastering the mechanics of composing and revising and gain experience giving constructive feedback in a group setting.
