Are you interested in trying your hand at writing? Have you ever been curious about writing fiction or poetry? Then join me for this Women’s Writing Workshop. This workshop is appropriate for beginning writers, as well as those who are experienced, but struggling with writer’s block. We’ll begin each session with a writing prompt to initiate a generative writing experience. In a safe environment of women, we will share our work with each other in a non-critique circle. I look forward to hearing voices from many different women and all are welcome.
