The Roots of Writing Workshop (August 17, 24, 31)

$225.00

Write fearlessly. Write consistently. Write authentically. Write down to the roots.

A three-week writing workshop for beginners. Drop-ins also welcome! Choose Single Workshop when reserving.

In this welcoming three-week workshop led by Lynn Blumenfeld and Bridget LeRoy, we will discuss voice, organization, imagination, word choices (and why fewer are almost always better). We will touch on both fiction and non-fiction, sharing examples and imparting how showing is better than telling, and effective ways to reveal character. 

These Saturday morning workshops will incorporate writing prompts, gentle guidance, the art of pruning that which doesn’t serve the narrative, and an opportunity to share your work in a safe and supportive setting. Ultimately, through writing, individuals will have the opportunity to process their experiences, gain insights, and foster a deeper understanding of themselves. 

Sign up for the series of three workshops or choose to drop in on a single workshop.

Participants are encouraged to bring notebooks and or laptops.

On Saturday mornings from 10:30 to 12:30 pm, members can enjoy early access to the gardens with the family, connecting with nature, art, and craft with our friends from The Shine Studio. Children, parents, grandparents, and caregivers can work with an educator or follow easy steps on their own to create a unique piece inspired by LongHouse, sometimes even made with elements sourced from the gardens. This activity is a benefit of membership and free to members, but reservations are encouraged.  

We are grateful to our partner The Shine Studio for making this experience possible.
