Whether you’ve been writing for years, just want to get started, or are ready to get started again, the Lansdowne Writers’ Workshop will provide you with the support and solitude you need to access your authentic voice and write your deepest, most honest, stories. The first hour of each session will be devoted to a writing exercise. The second hour will be available for students wishing to receive verbal and written feedback on a piece of writing and learn how to take it to the next level.
The May/June session begins May 16 and includes the following dates: May 16, May 23, May 30, June 6, June 13, and June 20. We meet from 7-9PM.
Cost for the six-week session is $180.
This will be the final workshop before summer starts. Workshop will resume in September 2018.
