Is your goal to write more but feeling stuck? Don't worry, you're not alone.

Whether you're interested in getting published in magazines and literary journals or just want to write for yourself, we'll discuss the art of creating a writing practice.

In this three-hour workshop, we'll get advice from famous writers, use prompts and exercises to get the pen moving and start working on our ideal project: whether it's an essay, story, book idea or just writing in our journal. By the end of the class, you'll feel better and start the new year on the right writing foot.

Bring a journal or paper and a pen. A computer is optional and welcome. All levels are welcome.
