Welcome to 2012!

It's a New Year!  That means 365 bright mornings, 12 creative months, 4 fresh seasons, and a productive year to be enjoyed.  Who better to do it with than your buddies at the one-and-only Evanston Writers Workshop?  Our slogan is, "Doing Battle for the Writer Since 2007."  What does that mean for you, for today?

Try something new this year!  As we promised, we are offering more and more workshops to choose from.

You wanted non-fiction workshops:  we're bringing you Kelly Bale, Non-Fiction Editor at Sourcebooks, on January 15th.

You wanted multi-genre authors and authors who jump between output methods (i.e. novels, screenplays, graphic novels, etc.):  we're bringing you the incomparable Sherrill Bodine on January 28th.

You wanted to work on crafting your novel project:  we're bringing you the Plotting Group by kind permission of Cherry Adair, starting January 9th.

If you haven't tried it yet, our popular Critique Group has a new leader and guidelines.  Ross is our friendly Drill Sergeant and together with a talented, knowledgeable group will help you whip your work into shape.  We meet the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays at Barnes and Noble.

If you want to write but feel stuck, need some inspiration, or just want to play with the words on the page, give our Prompt Group a try.  Started in the Spring of 2009 and still going strong, the Prompt Group experiments with different prompts each time and is a safe, supportive environment in which to try to things.  We meet the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays at Barnes and Noble.

You wanted online content:  we've brought you the Forum, an online community of writers from all over the world, not just here in the Evanston and Chicago areas.

We're growing and hope you'll come with us!  Check us out on Meetup, our website, Facebook, and @evanstonwriters.

And remember, our annual conference is just 8 months away, August 24-26, 2012.  Check out our conference website and @ewwconference.

Write on!
