Writing Workshop with Dan White

4 Weekly meetings on Wednesday evenings

6:00-8:00pm Oct 30th - Nov 20th, 2019


This class, which is open to beginning and advanced writers, will experiment with unconventional and creative ways to spark new ideas and push through writer’s block. Each week we'll try new ways to help you feel more inspired to tackle your projects and learn how play can unlock creativity, with on-the-spot exercises, close readings and improvisations. You will leave the class with ideas on how to start and develop your creative works, from poems to short stories to plays and creative nonfiction. You will also gain an understanding of the tricks and tools that writers use to generate fresh ideas. Participants will also learn to identify and defeat the forces that can thwart or deaden creativity

Held at  the Catamaran Literary Studio,  at the Tannery Arts Center
