Flood Writers

Writing the Flood

General-topic writing workshop Open to all

Meets the third Saturday of each month, 1:00-4:30 pm

Register now to join us next month!

For anyone looking to prime the writing pump or learn more about the Writing Ourselves Whole writing group format: using the Amherst Writers and Artists method, we write in response to exercises designed to get those pens moving, so that you can get onto the page the stories that have been stuck inside for too long.

Continue working on an ongoing project, or get started on something that’s been percolating for awhile. We have time for three different writing exercises, so you’ll leave with fresh material. Receive feedback from peer writers about what’s already strong in your new work!

We meet in Oakland, near Lake Merritt, close to BART and bus lines.

No previous writing experience required — open to folks of all writing abilities!

Mark your calendars for the next Flood Write:

  • Saturday, November 16, 2013
  • Saturday, December 21, 2013
  • Saturday, January 18, 2014 (!)

Fee for this workshop is $50 (with a sliding scale).
