Writing is often very solitary and sometimes all a project needs are some fresh eyes and a little accountability! In this four-week course, writers of all levels are encouraged to bring short stories, in-progress projects, and/or complete manuscripts for active workshopping with a group. Each week will focus on aspects of outlining, plotting, technique, and editing. Reading aloud and active participation–both giving and receiving critique– will be a major focus of the workshop.
Classes are every Wednesday night, 6pm-7:30pm, July 12th through August 2nd at Mt. Pleasant Library. Register through Eventbrite to sign up for the course. Please sign up only if you plan on attending all four classes. Register here.
