Our next virtual workshop will be led by Catherine Kapphahn on Saturday, July 11th from 2:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m:

“Unleashing the Details! A Virtual Prose Workshop”

How can you bring your story to life? How do you excavate details that will make your story fly, swoop, and hover? How can you weave in sensory details that will allow the reader to see what you see, feel what you feel? In this writing workshop, you will draw upon your own experiences, summon memory lists, examine pictures and excerpts, so you can give your story the life it deserves.

RSVP to receive instructions on how to join the virtual workshop here: https://bit.ly/NewtownJuly11.
