Description: Beginning & Experienced Writers Welcome
Fiction, Poetry, Autobiography/Memoir, Non Fiction
Whether you’ve been writing for years, just want to get started, or are ready to reboot your writing practice, the Lansdowne Writers’ Workshop provides support and focused, quiet time to access your authentic voice and write your deepest, most honest, stories. The first hour of each session is devoted to a writing exercise. The second hour is available for participants wishing to receive verbal and written feedback on a piece of writing and learn how to take it to the next level. In the workshop we write fiction, poetry, autobiography/memoir, creative non fiction, and plays. Each session is designed to include returning participants, as well as welcome newcomers.

Cost for the seven-week session is $180.
