4-Week: Writing 101—Gotta Start Somewhere

$205.00 Members
$230.00 Non-members

Let’s say you want to write, but have no idea how to begin. Or, you’re not sure what you’d like to try—fiction, nonfiction, poetry, memoir. Perhaps you’ve even got a sizzling writing idea, but can’t quite muster up the courage to take a craft workshop. That’s quite all right: This highly experiential, non-critiquing writing workshop is for you. You’ll experiment with a wide variety of writing exercises, learn to use your journal as a creative catalyst, receive constructive feedback on writing strengths, set do-able writing goals, and discuss future workshop options. No previous experience necessary. Just bring a pen, paper, and your relentless, burning desire to write.

Please note that our 4-week workshops do not include formal critiques, though there may be opportunities for informal sharing. If you’d like your work critiqued in depth, please see the 8-week workshop listings.

Joy was encouraging but not coddling. She was very enthusiastic and gave great feedback as well as good exercises. The workshop did it’s job—I feel rejuvenated and happy and 100% certain I will be returning for another workshop at Lighthouse.
