WOMEN READING ALOUD Writers critique in guided workshop series once a month for 3 months

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)


TBA
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.

CONFERENCES

Thirteen full-day conferences have been held since 2003. Writers come together and share their work aloud in small groups, facilitated by a seasoned writer. Silent feedback sheets are distributed in each group to ensure the writer leaves with concrete feedback from her group. Published authors have the opportunity to promote book sales. A scrumptious lunch is served and a guest author — always a delight — spends the afternoon sharing her writing experience and taking questions from the audience.

Past Speakers include:

 

  • Cate Marvin --poet, founder/VIDA
