HATCHLING SPRING: a creative writing series
This four-week long workshop series will hatch on Zoom over the first four Saturdays of April, 2023 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. MST.
Week 1: Nest (April 1st)
Week 2: Egg (April 8th)
Week 3: Feather (April 15th)
Week 4: Wing (April 22nd)
Salon & Closing Ceremony, Sunday, April 23rd
(11:00 a.m. thru 12:30 p.m.)
Each Saturday has an individual sub theme designed to compliment the overall concept of "Hatchling Spring." This four-week spring series will serve as a restorative nest as we regenerate ourselves and our words from the stillness of winter. We will build a nest in which to lay our eggs, preen our feathers to make the quills needed to write our way forward, and then take flight with the wings our stories spin.
Sarah serves as a writing midwife by providing space to write in community. She offers literary examples for participants to study and assigns unique writing prompts designed to inspire both the novice and seasoned writer (these are often custom-tailored to meet the individual and collective needs each new classroom culture creates). Both poets and prose writers are welcome, as are all genres of writing (no snobbery here!). Come write your/our story. Small workshops of no more than 8 writers per Saturday guarantees the intimacy artists require to truly flourish.
$250 for the entire series (includes an 8 page critique in addition to the 4,000 words you will workshop over the four weeks) or $75 per Saturday. Please register by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you've noted the change in price please know how much we HATE having to do this, but with the current inflation impacting everything from the cost of rent to website prices to paper and ink, it was the only way we could maintain the sliding scale and scholarship services we always offer to one or two students. The truth is we offer some of the cheapest workshops and author services out there, and we've been charging the same amount for the series since we first began a decade ago. We can make arrangements for payment plans if need be and please do inquire about financial assistance if needed. On the other hand, if you happen to be in a position to donate toward the scholarship fund, we would be grateful. Please be sure to specify that you are doing so for tax purposes. Thank you!
