“A writer is someone who writes.” -William Stafford. Join us for a six-week writing workshop, where beginning and experienced writers work together and share ideas in a supportive environment.
January 24, 2017 – February 28, 2017
(inclement weather makeup on March 7)
Tuesdays, 6:00-9:00 p.m.
All classes held in the Conference Room at Pakachoag Church
203 Pakachoag Street, Auburn, MA 01501
The first session is free. $175 for five subsequent three-hour sessions.
Please register by Thursday, January 19.
Register online here or contact the church office at 508-755-8718.
We will gather at Pakachoag Church in a supportive writing community, write together to prompted exercises, read our fresh work when we choose to, and respond with what we liked about each others’ work. A typical session includes a brief coffee break then discussion of personal writing projects. Members may hand out copies of their work for review at home and group discussion at the following meeting. So bring your notebooks and pens or laptops, forget what you think you know or do not know about writing, and discover the joy of finding your unique voice in a fun, nurturing workshop.
