WORD CAFÉ

Writing is lonely work. Why not sometimes do it together?

Mondays @ 9-11:00 am

**PLEASE NOTE: THERE WILL BE NO WORD CAFÉ ON APRIL 15TH**

Location: 103 Main Street, Apt. 1,  3rd Floor (Formerly The Artist’s Loft)

How it Works: We will briefly introduce ourselves and our projects/goals at the beginning of each session, and then work quietly side by side. All genres are welcome. Writers are welcome to take quiet tea/coffee breaks (away from the writing table) to chat.

This is a wonderful way to launch your creative week with focus, connect with other writers, and dedicate time to a new or ongoing writing project.

Tea provided

$5-10 drop in donation

Facilitator: Robin MacArthur

SPRING WRITING WORKSHOP

It’s greening up out there. Let’s gather, and share our work with one another, and bring our projects (long-brewing or brand new) out of hibernation and into the light! This supportive, encouraging and semi-formal workshop is for writers of fiction, creative non-fiction and poetry. (Short stories, novels, essays, lyric essays, memoirs, poems, hybrid forms, etc.) Both new and established writers are welcome, though we do have an application process for this intimate session.

This five-week workshop will have a maximum of ten participants, accepted on a first come, first serve basis. We will get to know one another and our goals. We will do some generative work, talk a lot about process and some about craft, and create a generous circle of (gentle) feedback.

To apply, please send a one or two paragraph letter of introduction describing your work and your intentions via the contact page. We will then contact you requesting a 5 page writing sample. This is an opportunity to offer time, dedication, and the gift of reflection to the writing project of your choice—perhaps something new, or a manuscript you’ve been working on (or dreaming of working on) for years.

TUESDAYS, 5:30-7:30 PM

April-May 2019. Dates: 4/23, 4/30, 5/7, 5/21, 5/28*

*If these look different than the dates on the poster they are: we are continuously tweaking these dates to accommodate the needs of all!

Cost: 5 week session, $180

This fee also includes a 30 minute one-on-one consultation with the instructor. There are two scholarships available—please include a scholarship request with your application.

Location: 103 Main Street, Apt. 1,  3rd Floor
