Four different workshops will be guided by experienced instructors and authors eager to share their knowledge of writing genres that will include one-act plays, storytelling, creative writing, personal essay, memoir, and more.
As a group, you will talk about your writing and reading life; issues from the previous 24 hours at Chautauqua and in the nation; craft issues; receive writing advice and guidance; learn how to make writing a priority in your life if you want to; explore “freewriting,” i.e., writing quietly together for a few minutes.
A minimum 30-minute workshop devoted to group discussion of each participant’s writing will happen daily. The night before each class, everyone will have carefully read the submissions we work on that day.
If all spaces are reserved, ask to be put on a WAITING LIST in the event there are cancellations.
