Everyone has their own voice and stories to tell, whether the stories stem from imagination or memory. A free three-hour workshop will be held from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Nov. 10, at Desmond-Fish Library.
This is your workshop if you: are a beginning or experienced adult writer; always wanted to write but think you’re not a writer; are a writer and need encouragement or inspiration; are blocked or don’t know how to move forward with writing; want to hone your craft; want to develop characters and scenes; want to explore stories for memoir.
Using the Amherst Writers and Artists method, Wallach provides a supportive atmosphere to write, using prompts (evocative prose, poetry, photos, props) to spark your creative voice. After writing, pieces will be read aloud and the group will respond with positive comments, for everything in this workshop is a first draft and deserves encouragement. The workshop will focus on what sounds beautiful, what stays with listeners, what is memorable. Your voice will shine in your writing.
Workshop limited to 10 participants. All you need is pen and paper (or a laptop). Desmond-Fish Library is located at 472 Route 403, Garrison.
Pre-registration required. To register – or if you have questions – email [email protected].
