What we're about
Writers collaborating to improve their skills through workshops and learning events...
Join with other writers from around the blue planet on Zoom as we discuss and work to perfect our writing every Friday morning, open to any genre: fiction, fantasy, sci-fi, nonfiction, memoir, flash, poetry, or screenplay. Stephen Kastner encourages emerging writers to join the Friday Open Genre Workshop for engaging MFA style discussions with a small, private and select tribe of writers willing to read and review each other's work in a creative test bed. We host the Poetry and Performance workshop with Darlene Witte on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month
The Green Mountain Writers Group (GMWG) publishes a website with a private Discussion Board to facilitate our workshop events, and an online journal featuring works developed by our workshop participants. We are embarking upon our first print publication, a compilation of GMWB Members' poems, Poetry & Performance – The First Year.
About the founder: Stephen Kastner:
Since 1997, I have been an independent consultant at DesignWise Studios. I began a visual artist in painting and photography. In the 80s I worked as a professional photo-journalist for the NYT papers in Florida. In 2006, I lived in Yunnan, China and spent 6 months as a filmmaker while designing the curriculum for what was to became the top-rated Chinese Culture Spa on TripAdvisor, the Linden Centre. Now, I employ writing, digital photography, videography, graphic design, and networked media to create all varieties of digital storytelling and I coach authors on self-publishing.
