Our goal is to assist the new writer from concept to completion. Ultimately, our small group provides the motivation to keep writing, no matter what. The Colorado Springs Writers' Workshop is an extension of the very successful Long Beach Writers' Workshop. It is a real workshop based on MFA texts. Critiques of new work, exercises and creativity are at the heart.
In seven years of running writers' roundtables, I have never heard anyone say "This writing is perfect."
We all need help, whether it's in the form of advice, criticism or a nice hug. Everybody makes mistakes. It's called practice. Even Mozart didn't play perfectly his first time.
Relax. Enjoy the process.
Most self-help programs are really meant to make you feel better about yourselves. Nothing feels better than accomplishment. The purpose of our meeting is to help you finish your book.
In our first three years in Colorado Springs, our members have completed seven books and are in the final stages of several more.
The group allows new people to audit the group before making a decision. We are looking for writers who really want to contribute. We genuinely enjoy new people and are willing to communicate our formula for success.
Are you serious about writing a book?
We'll get you out of your head and in front of a computer. You can't write your story if you never start. Bring your idea or your current writing project and we will discuss the steps necessary to get it done.
