$60.00 Per Person (10% off for members)


All writers need a balance of both encouragement and critical feedback. A writing group is one of the best ways to get these nutrients — but only if it goes well! How do we find the right writers to critique our work? How do we create a sustainable rhythm of shared accountability? How do we support each other to reach ambitious goals? This fun, inclusive, community-oriented workshop will offer many different answers to these questions, giving participants a wealth of options to choose from when forming a new writing group or evolving an existing one. We will spend time on individual writing prompts to define our own goals and needs. We will practice workshopping skills in breakout sessions, gaining experience with offering and receiving truly useful feedback. And we will spend some time connecting with other writers — potential new group members, writing community allies, and friends. Participants should bring a 500-1,000 word piece of writing to share. This workshop is appropriate for nonfiction and fiction writers, and all levels of experience are welcome.

One Sunday, August 28 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. EDT Online
