Craft of Writing Classes

Sounding It Out: A Writer's Workshop

  • Date: 07-27-2020 to 07-31-2020
  • Time: 9:00 am to 2:00 pm
  • Tuition: $300.00
  • Open to: All Genders 18+

Give your longer work a chance to be heard! One of the most significant, affirming experiences a writer can have is sharing their work with an audience that values self-expression. Incorporating Women Writing for (a) Change practices, this workshop asks writers to examine a lengthy piece of your work according to standards of craft. The writers—now readers of each other’s work—describe what they find. They note areas where the work falls short, ranging from the vision of the story, its essential premise, whether a character is acting consistently, pacing of tension, and many other points of structure and style.
