Writers Block Party

Has this whole writing thing got you dazed, stuck, or confused? Do you want to write but don’t even know how to start? This “come as you are,” multi-genre workshop is for you—whether you’re a non-writer wanting to try something new, a beginning writer who wants to dip your toes into multiple forms of expression, or an experienced writer who just needs a kick in the pants to recharge your imagination. In an open and supportive environment, we will generate poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction on the spot, exploring how to go from zero to draft with strategies and techniques that will remove those writing roadblocks for good. Come with a blank notebook or screen, and leave with several new beginnings for potential projects that will keep you writing well after the Glen.

Your registration includes all reading materials for this course.
