Please note: RSVPing on Meetup does not register you for this workshop. You must register at INSTRUCTOR: Holly Walrath TIME: Four Wednesdays, August 22nd, August 29th, September 5th, September 12th, 6-9 PM PRICE: Early-Bird until Friday, August 17th: $150 for members, $180 for non-members; After Friday, August 17th: $180 for members, $210 for non-members LOCATION: Writespace at 2000 Edwards #208, Houston, TX, 77007 LEVEL: All Levels CAP: Limited to 12 Writers This workshop is designed to support writers through the three central components of the writing life: drafting, revising, and submitting work to publishers. If you are new and would like to learn how to produce good work and publish, or if you’ve been writing for a while yet seek professional support to guide you through the process of drafting, revising, and submitting a piece from start-to-finish, then this is the workshop for you. Through exciting writing prompts and exercises, we will create fresh, new work; through group feedback sessions and revision, we will polish our work; and through shared instructions on sending work to publishers, we will submit our work. We will cover a lot of ground very quickly, but throughout the workshop, the instructor will guide and encourage you and answer any questions. While we hope that everyone’s submitted pieces will be accepted to be published, the goal of this course is to empower participants to understand the fundamental process of being a writer, so that after workshop, we can repeat the process on our own and swiftly fulfill all our goals. All genres are welcome. If you already have a piece you know you would like to submit to be published at the end of the workshop, please bring it along. If you do not, no need to worry, as during the workshop, we will explore writing prompts and exercises designed to generate ideas that will lead us to complete a publishable piece of writing.
