Thanks to the WEDNESDAY WRITERS who make this series extra special
See you in the FALL!
This is our only FALL workshop "series." SOLD OUT
Limited to 10 writers
Randolph, New Jersey
This workshop series is designed to generate new work from creative prompts. Writers are not required to bring any work with them. Writers of all levels - including those "dreaming" of writing - are invited to participate. The atmosphere will support and encourage writers to explore their "authentic" voices." The series will be led by Julie Maloney, director of Women Reading Aloud. Workshop is limited to ten members. The series is modeled after the Amherst Writers and Artists Method.
Julie Maloney is the first writer to bring this method to the area. She brings a wealth of teaching experience to all WRA workshops. Headquartered in Morris County, NJ, she is the leading facilitator of this writing method.

DEVOTED TO A WORK-IN-PROGRESS
3 Saturdays - Once a Month
This series has helped writers publish their books after finding support within the group.
(If you are interested, please contact Julie)
10:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Includes Lunch: $295
One Saturday a month will be devoted to those engaged in a work-in-progress. Whether you are writing a novel, poetry chapbook, memoir, or non-fiction, a group limited to 8 writers will listen and offer feedback. Come away from your desk and allow your work to be heard by “new ears.” Present a question or writing dilemma and leave with a fresh approach. Unsure about character or plot development? Find suggestions in this unique peer group. Dig out your manuscript from the bottom drawer and review with fresh eyes. Re-affirm where you’re going. Feel good about getting back to work on a project founded on blood, sweat and tears. Embark on mainstream publishing or self-publish.
