Drop-In Creative Writing Workshop

The Astoria Bookshop drop-in creative writing workshop continues every other Sunday via Zoom. Next up, 11/7 at 4 pm!

11/7: Beings + Things: Objects in the Time of Covid
Did the pandemic give an ordinary object new meaning?
How can that object tell the story of your state of being?
We’ll inspire some writing by sharing the “stuff” that got us through.

Participation is limited to 4 people, so click here to register and grab your spot today.

Virtual Write-Ins Continue

‘You Do Do’ Virtual Write-Ins are continuing this March! Tuesdays and Saturdays (10 am – 12 noon). Sign-up today to set aside some focused writing time this month.

This was so great – I had a random idea that I wrote in my notes app and came out with nearly 2000 words – ME, A POET!! LOL it’s amazing how far a little group accountability can go.

2021 Workshops and Virtual Write-Ins start this week!

Writing, like new year’s resolutions, can be intimidating.

After a tumultuous year, I’m making 2021 all about setting small goals rather than tangle myself into a knot over long-term, lofty ones.

Don’t worry about how “good” you are! Instead, set the small goal of joining us this January for an online workshop or virtual write-in. Allow yourself the freedom to flex your imagination in the company of other creatives.

Sessions are on a suggested donation basis, pay what and if you can. All are welcome. Full information and registration links below.

Upcoming in 2021
Bi-monthly creative writing workshops resume every other Sunday. Each month has its own theme. For January, we’ll be exploring the role of setting.

January 10th at 4 pm – Senses in Setting: Using all five senses to unlock your setting. Click here to register.

January 24th at 4 pm – Mentor Text: Studying “The Story of an Hour” and playing with how to use setting in your story.  Click here to register.

NEW! “You Do You” Virtual Write-Ins: Share a two-hour block of focused time with fellow writers to work on personal projects. *Note: A prompt will also be provided in the chat for added writing inspiration.
