In this 1.5 hour interactive online workshop, we’ll analyze sample texts, review differing approaches to beginning a piece of writing, flex our writing muscles with a few prompts, and consider the importance of form and structure across the genres. You’ll go away with resources and suggestions for further reading, writing, and reflection.

This workshop should be useful for writers at all levels, working in all genres. Come prepared to write!
