Ready to jump start your writing for the New Year? Join Asheville’s Flatiron Writers for their signature workshop, Create Your Writing Life.

Since 1993, the Flatiron Writers critique group has been meeting to provide feedback and support for one another. Since 2010, they have brought presenters to Asheville to teach classes on craft and the business of writing.


In this day-long workshop, the Flatiron Writers will share what has worked for them in claiming a creative life, focusing on:

  • Space & Environment

  • Routines & Rituals

  • Writing & Creative Process,

  • Building Literary Community

The event will last from 10am to 4pm with an hour lunch break.


A "writing group speed dating" activity will take place starting at 3:30pm and continue into a wine and cheese social hour from 4-5pm, giving participants a chance to continue their conversations and explore forming writing groups.

Create Your Writing Life is Saturday, February 16, 2019, from 10am to 4pm followed by a wine and cheese social from 4pm to 5pm.


This event is co-sponsored and hosted by the Thomas Wolfe Center for Narrative at Lenoir-Rhyne University in Asheville, which has generously donated space for the workshop.
