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

A Writing Workshop for Beginners


$100.00 – $225.00 per person


1h 30min

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.
