101 Workshops

Three 1.5-Hour Sessions
Members $30/Session | General Public $35/Session

Online: Zoom credentials to be provided


Our 101 Writing Series is for early-stage writers of prose and poetry or anyone who is ready to explore their inner storyteller but doesn’t know where to start. Using examples from great books, workshops in the Novel, Short Story, Memoir, and Poetry offer a grounding in basic skills and strategies that will jumpstart your creativity and give direction to your practice.

Each workshop is offered in a series of three sessions, which lend themselves equally to sequential or individual participation. Every season, 101 workshops will feature new authors to study and fresh approaches for honing your writing ability.
