Are you looking to infuse your writing with energy, flexibility, inspiration and new ideas? If so, this workshop is for you. Each week, we’ll experiment with different genres, assignments and writing forms. The goal is to make you a more nimble writer, to provide you with more and sharper tools to bring to the table when you write, and to help you find and strengthen your voice and your stories.
Over the years, this workshop has served as a springboard for memoirs, magazine stories, novels, poems, essays and Pushcart-nominated short stories. It’s the ultimate writers workshop!
Writers from all genres are welcome.
Each week you will receive a homework assignment designed to elicit a piece of writing. (You do not have to do it, and you may bring in a work already in progress.) You will receive direction, feedback, tools, tips and techniques from the instructor and from other writers around the table as you workshop your pieces in a respectful, collegial and fun environment.
The instructor, Carol Dannhauser, has won numerous awards for her television, magazine, newspaper, memoir and short-fiction writing, and is the author of four books of non-fiction. She was named a master teaching artist (writing) by the Connecticut Commission on the Arts and has taught writers across genre for more than 15 years.
Limited to six participants.
