Writing the Personal Essay You've Always Wanted to Write

We all have those ideas in the back of our notebook — the personal essays about life and love and all that's in between. In this workshop, we’ll talk about the secrets to successfully taking that idea and getting it out of your notebook and into the world. Bring a laptop or notebook! And an idea. We’ll be mostly talking through your fledgling concepts as a workshop group, then entertaining some flash writing for fully-developed pitches and even opening scenes. 

Tickets: $30
