Feeling stumped or stagnant? Have an idea, but don’t know where to start? Not a “writing from ideas” kind of writer? In this workshop we’ll explore ways of tricking ourselves into writing. We’ll create language banks, dig up gluts of memory, and then hunt for the narrative hiding in these resources. We’ll also look at writers who have developed unique methods of generating work and mimic these efforts at spinning raw material into stories.
Space in this workshop is limited. We ask that you reserve your spot through our free ticketing system -- the workshop availability is first come, first served. This workshop is for authors who are at least 16 or older.
