Join us at The Astoria Bookshop on 6/17 at 5 pm for this month’s creative writing workshop:
Stepping into Scenework.
Whether you are writing a script, novel, or short story, writing’s basic building block is the “scene.” One piles on top of the next, each changing something that came before by creating and/or confronting conflict. Through a mixture of discussion and writing exercises, we’ll explore writing scenes designed to relentlessly move your story forward.
$10 suggested contribution. BYO Pen & Paper!

Looking to get your creative brain moving? Need a refreshing way to mix-up your writing? Then push away from your keyboard, get ready to put pen to paper, and come mingle with other writers in person tonight at Q.E.D. Astoria. 8 pm!
Hope to see you! BYO Pen & Paper (no drink minimum)
Wonderful class creating “I-characters” at The Astoria Bookshop tonight!
My “I-character” was revealed when I expressed my awe over people who are able to keep other people alive. Happy Mother’s Day!
