REGISTRATION IS CLOSED

 

 

Tara Skurtu is back by popular demand! Tara’s last workshop, Writing from Memory, was such a hit that we couldn’t resist offering another great workshop… or two. These workshops are meant to compliment each other and would make for a very productive and creative weekend. We realize not everyone has the time to take both, but we’re warning you, it might be hard to choose… As a little incentive, we are offering a 10% discount to everyone who signs up for both.

 

How to Be a Better Writer

Creative writing is a process of constant discovery—part instinct, part craft. We learn our stories while we write them. We’ve all had this experience: Fueled by a bout of inspiration and instinct, you write a first draft. You love this draft, you’re proud of yourself. Then, the next day, you read it again: I thought this was so much better yesterday! Have no fear, you’re on the right track, and here’s the magic formula:

(final draft) – (first draft) = editing and revision!

In this intensive writing workshop you’ll bring in a short draft of poetry or prose and, in a fun, relaxed environment, we’ll read aloud, discuss what’s working and why, and offer constructive critiques. You’ll leave with writing tips and tricks for your craft toolkit and gain feedback that will guide you towards that “leave-alone-able” draft you’re after. And, as an added bonus, you’ll become less afraid of having your work “out there.”

How to Get Your Writing “Out There”

Do you want to take your creative writing to the next level? Would you like to see it eventually—yes, I’m about to say it—published? This intensive workshop is all about A) polishing your work to get it to that “leave-alone-able” state; and B) walking you through the submission process. From cover letters to bios to choosing where to send your writing, we’ll go over how to know when your work is ready to send and how to get it “out there” in the world!
