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. Click here to register.
11/21: Give Me a Deadline: Feedback Workshop Have a piece or need a deadline to finish one? We will share screens and read each other’s drafts out loud and provide group feedback. 1800 words (or less). Participation is limited to 4 people, so click here to register and grab your spot today.
Earlier this month, I set an intention to make my “online writing workshops and private coaching sessions as open and honest as my in-person offerings.”
Transitioning my monthly class at The Astoria Bookshop to a weekly online offering added a bright light to my Sundays. I’ve loved reconnecting with regulars and meeting new writers. We even added a second session to honor my goal by keeping class sizes small.
If you would like to join us at 3 or 5 pm today (2 spots left in each class!) or be added to my newsletter to receive info on future sessions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
SUPPORT The Astoria Bookshop every day by purchasing books through their Bookshop page or preordering titles/buying gift certificates directly at astoriabookshop.com.
A first page is the first impression. The first chance to make people sit up and take notice of your work.

Join us today at The Astoria Bookshop at 5 pm to kick-off a new year by exploring how to write powerful openings. Through a mixture of discussion and writing exercises, we’ll take a look at various story starter techniques and use them to revise an existing piece of work.
