Tuesday/Thursday/Friday Jumpstart, with Dori Ostermiller

Even the most seasoned writers have difficulty carving out time and summoning inspiration. This popular, productive morning workshop provides quiet, structured writing time among peers, a handful of fabulous prompts to get you rolling, and the inspiration to support your writing practice.

Starting with a variety of imaginative prompts, we warm up, engage in a sustained writing period (over an hour), then share our work and receive thoughtful, encouraging feedback.  Each session includes writing time, craft tips, quotes, supportive discussion, and advice on how to sustain a creative life in challenging times…  Come for inspiration, structure, and a supportive community, and make serious headway on your projects!  Appropriate for all levels and genres. These popular workshops fill fast!

Tues, Thurs, or Friday mornings, 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.; 10-week fall session starts week of September  5th ($425)
