Beechwood Writers’ Workshop!

We are so happy to host the Beechwood Writers’ Workshop this fall!   Sign up here, session starts on Weds., Oct. 3rd.

Beechwood Writers’ Workshop welcomes writers of all levels who are interested in developing fiction and/or memoir in a supportive, creative environment within a small group. BWW is led by published novelist and essayist Elise A. Miller.

We meet once a week for six weeks. Each meeting lasts three hours. Writers create on the spot using writing prompts gathered from a variety of sources, then share and discuss these exercises. After a short break, two participants workshop previously written pieces with the group.

The price is $240. That boils down to a little over $13 an hour, in which participants learn the most effective way to critique one another’s work as well as their own. Writers receive editorial and story help, a heavy toolbox of writing skills, and a creative boost within a supportive community.

Additional time is allotted to pow-wow about publishing opportunities, contests and networking strategies, if publishing is your goal.
