Writing a large project, be it fiction, memoir, essay or poetry collection, takes much more than knowledge of craft. No matter where you are in the writing, these projects require community to motivate, support and discuss the time-intensive realities of tackling a full-length book. These three workshop circles will provide that community along with some real talk about commitment, discipline, and finishing.
