Fall Writing Circle


Mark your calendars and start dreaming! We will be hosting a six-week Fall Writing Circle (very similar to our Spring Writing Workshop) on Tuesday evenings from 5:30-7:30 starting in early September. Bring your words out of hibernation and into the light—we’ll be there to hold them.

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 six-week workshop will have a maximum of EIGHT 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

Cost: 6 week session, $180 (scholarships available)

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

Instructor: Robin MacArthur

Robin is the author of a collection of short stories, HALF WILD, and the novel HEART SPRING MOUNTAIN. Both have been translated into French and been finalists for the New England Book Award. Robin has taught in MFA programs, undergraduate writing programs, high school writing programs, and led independent writing workshops for many years.

Space is limited to EIGHT participants this time around. Be in touch via the CONTACT page if you would like to reserve a spot!
