Have you ever thought about writing creatively, but don’t know where or how to start? Do you have a novel, short story, poem, or play inside of you that’s begging to be set free? Have you done creative writing in the past, but stepped away for a bit and are looking for a way to get back into the craft? Do you want to try something new surrounded by a great support team?
Then The LOFT Writers Workshop wants you!
*The LOFT Writers Workshop has decided to have scheduled topics from September till December! View the scheduled topics for each group below.
The LOFT Writers Workshop meeting schedule is as follows. Each meeting will be Wednesdays from 7:30pm to 9:00pm.
Meeting Schedule & Topic:
October 3rd - Roundtable Workshop
October 17th - Writing LGBTQ+ Identities AND Writing Outside of Your Own Identity
November 7th - Roundtable Workshop
November 28th - Publishing, Part 2
December 12th - Roundtable Workshop
Friday, December 14th - LOFT Open Mic
At the LOFT Writers Workshop you will be guided step-by-step by trained writers into the world of creative writing. We’ll be starting each meeting with a creative free-write (guided by a prompt), which will then lead into a group share and structured workshop. Keep in mind that isn't a Book Club, but rather a consortium of writers of all skill levels, though we may read published works from time to time.
Don’t know what or how you want to write? No worries, there’s zero pressure to work on any one specific project or genre. We want you to explore and experiment and discover what works for you. Writing is, after all, a process of discovery, so let's have an adventure!
Workshop is free! $5 suggested donation, more if you can, less if you can't!
