Time to workout those writing muscles by sharing your terrible-awful-no-good-first-drafts with our passionate community of supportive and friendly writers. Together we'll celebrate the magic in your writing and, just like personal trainers, we'll give each other the tips, tricks and gentle pushes which build strong writing muscles. Writers of all genres from poetry to fiction to non-fiction are welcome. FYI: Most students are writing fiction and memoir at this time. Please bring 1-3 pages of writing double spaced and in 12 point font. Classes range in size from 8-18 students so bring as many copies as you can afford. However, we can share copies if needed. (Check out Poet's Gym on the 1st Saturday of every month for our poetry writers.) |
