Calling all art worms! Yes we said “art worms”…like a bookworm, but all things art. Let’s gather to engage in conversation about recent articles, discuss current exhibitions, and gain from each other’s knowledge and experiences.
Regular meetups every third Tuesday of the month. Connect with like minded and get just a little social. Join us, attend a gathering, and suggest a topic of discussion.
This workshop is designed to help participants think through some of the choices and effects of time in writing - when to speed up, when to slow down, and how to move around in the past, present, and future.
Writing a book for young children who cannot yet read is deceptive. How difficult can it be to write a story with fifty, two hundred or six hundred words? A manuscript barely 2, 3, or 4 pages long? Or writing for children who are beginning readers.
The difficulty lies in conveying emotion, developing characters and a plot, creating an arc and captivating children with so few words. But also, creating a child’s voice or visualizing a child’s point of view when our own childhood is far behind us. Participants will be doing short writing exercises to inspire and stimulate their inner child.
This workshop will encourage participants to explore how to push through doubt and commit to doing the work needed to finish a manuscript, as well as open themselves and their work to criticism and feedback with the ultimate goal of being published.
