This week-long adult workshop meets August 1st-5th at The Cabin, 9:30am-12:30pm Monday-Friday
Writing your poem, story, or novel—whatever your genre—starts with a moment. In this workshop, explore how writers turn moments into scenes, stanzas, and chapters. Writers will learn to use images, manipulate mood and tone through concrete and figurative language, and how to employ literary devices, while enjoying some of the best contemporary and classic authors in various genres. Workshop participants will receive detailed, constructive critiques from the writing instructor, as well as peer reviews in a workshop format. We will also discuss where and how to publish. Thinking like a writer starts with writing the moment.
