Begins January 2013
Wednesdays, 9am-12 pm
Are you ready to find words for the stories at your center? Meridian Writers is open to women seeking a fun, generous and supportive atmosphere in which to write together and support one another’s creative efforts.
Using the Amherst Writers and Artists workshop method, we write together in response to exercises designed to spark your creative imagination. All genres and all experience levels are welcome — whether you’re working with memoir, short story, poetry, science fiction, essays, plays, journaling or no particular form, you are invited to join this community of writers who are ready to connect more deeply with their writing practice.
Every week, we have time for at least three writing sessions (two longer, one shorter); during breaks, there is time to connect with one another and discuss writing-related topics. Coffee and/or tea will be provided, as well as light snacks (sometimes even including homemade bread).
At the end of our nine weeks together, you will have a strong new creative community, and a beautiful body of new writing.
This group meets in Oakland near several BART stations (space is not wheelchair accessible). Spaces are limited to 9 writers per workshop session.
Fee for our regular 9 week workshop is $425. Fees from this workshop help support Writing Ourselves Whole’s workshops for trauma survivors.
