Everything You Need To Know
This 2 1/2 hour 6-week workshop takes place at the comfortable and crafty bungalow, Flatiron Writers Room, in West Asheville.
Limited off-street parking is available. You can also park on Covington Street or across the street in the gravel parking lot. Please do not park at UpCountry's Brewing parking lot next door!
Wheelchair accessibility is available. Please email me if you need other accessibility needs met prior to the class.
Entrance is the front door. Please feel free to arrive between 6:15-6:30pm, relax and get settled. We will have water, hot tea, coffee, and some light snacks available. We will take a stretch break during the workshop, and you'll have the option to stand up and move around whenever you like.
Please bring: your workshop submissions in printed copies for the group, a pad of paper, a pencil or pen, a light shawl or jacket to make sure you're comfortable. Cell phones must be turned to "silent" mode. Laptops or tablets are optional. If you cannot afford printed copies, or do not have access to a printer, please let me know ASAP and I can help coordinate it for you.
Bring your questions! This is an interactive, dynamic workshop, so don't be shy to ask questions.
Be prepared to write between classes. In addition to the weekly time together, you need to set aside time to write! Whether it's 30 minutes each morning or all day on a Sunday, find the time that works for you to create new paragraphs on your novel. This is a GENERATIVE workshop, which means it's not about revising, but generating new work. Don't let your inner editor stop you. Put one sentence in front of another.
Bring your submission to the class only when you're assigned. After registration, you will receive a welcome packet with all the details and what to expect.
