This is a writing workshop that will focus on learning a new technique or method each month. A guest speaker will share a sample of their work and then give a writing prompt for everyone to follow.

One of the surest ways to stand out as a writer is to write solid prose. The first step to writing solid prose is mastering your descriptions. In this workshop, Editor and Writer’s Atelier Founder, Racquel Henry will show you how to strengthen your descriptions through imagery and language.

We'll all write for 30 minutes, and then share our work with others, and receive helpful suggestions about what to improve. Bring your laptops, tablets, or notebook and pen and a willingness to learn.

Racquel Henry is a Trinidadian writer and editor with an MFA from Fairleigh Dickinson University. She is also a part-time English Professor and owns the writing center, Writer’s Atelier, in Winter Park, FL. In 2010 Racquel co-founded Black Fox Literary Magazine where she still serves as an editor. She loves Instagram, find her: @RacquelHenry or @WritersAtelier.

We will meet on the 4th Wednesday of every month.
