"I don’t wait to be struck by lightning and don’t need certain slants of light in order to write."  – Toni Morrison


Do you want to write but don't know where to start? Do you have an idea but no time to develop it? Writing begets writing and this workshop will get the juices flowing. You'll write to prompts and learn techniques to develop these freewrites into stories or essays. Using contemporary readings, you'll explore different genres and discover the motivation to continue. Discover the writer within you during these inspired seven weeks!


Optional: Want an extra hour of one-on-one attention?
Liz will provide written feedback on either part of a manuscript OR to help advise with the submission process for a total of an extra hour of consultation time. Please choose this option in the drop-down menu when purchasing this workshop. This extra time will be scheduled directly with the instructor.
