Designed and facilitated by experienced educator Damien Tillman, our workshops each focus on a specific aspect of writing such as poetry, fiction, world building, dialogue, show vs tell, storytelling, character design and more. We also discuss parts of the publishing and submission process. We approach our topics using multi-modal resources, brain-storming to explore concepts, and other educational practices such as writing prompts, open-ended questions and small group activities and exercises. Each workshop allows writers the option to present their work as well. Each presenter is limited to about 10 minutes, but it depends on how many people want to present. We really have a good time while improving our craft!
Sometimes we go out for food and drinks after our meetings as well.
