    The Writers Studio is happy to announce the revival of Word Sprint-- a weekly time to write in the company of others. Using Zoom to come together, we'll write for twenty-five minutes, take a break, repeat. There is no sharing or critique of your writing, only fast-paced, supportive productivity in the company of other writers. It will be fun, exciting, and might be the thing to help you finish (or start...) your manuscript. These virtual sessions will help participants set aside time to write and be with other writers in an informal setting. 

    The sessions will be led by a rotating team of hosts including Jen Scheiderman, Amelia Ramsey, Kassia Sing, Genevieve Douglass, and Steve Bice

    This class is a follow up class for those students that attended "Truth Matters: Finding the Courage to Write Your Story Part I" held in November. 

    In these troubled times, the news reminds us daily that the difficult history we share is with us still and we all suffer as a result. The often unexamined legacies of the attempted genocide of indigenous people and the enslavement of Africans, in particular, continue to haunt our land. Through writing fiction, poetry or memoir, we can chart a path to help us move forward together.

    This follow up class invites writers from all cultural lineages to bring their stories to the table. Lessons and assignments are designed to fit each individual’s skill level and project—beginner, intermediate, or advanced; fiction, poetry or creative non-fiction. Each session focuses on a different aspect of story craft—narrative arc, sensory detail, dialogue, mature narrator. Participants also learn to critique in ways that are supportive, honest and helpful by practicing deep listening.

    Writing can be a spiritual practice that teaches us to be fully present and alive to ourselves and the world.  Take a journey inward, tap into your imagination, and find the deep truths and visions.  In witnessing one another’s stories, let’s combine our energies to form a creative community of inspiration and compassion.

    • This class is a follow up class and registration is for those students that attended "Truth Matters: Finding the Courage to Write Your Story Part I" held in November. Registrants from that class have been emailed a registration pass code to complete registration.

    Author Bios:

    Laura Bowers Foreman and Ann Holmes Redding met 14 years ago and have been partners in teaching writing for nearly a decade. Their friendship began with sharing their personal stories and discovering common commitments both to writing and healing from ancestral and national historical harms. Together, Laura and Ann embody African, European, and indigenous heritages. Over the years they have jointly participated in a number of circles dedicated to healing and restorative justice.

    Dubbed “the story doulas” by one student, Ann and Laura consciously support and coach each writer on the journey from inception to delivery of their work. They are experienced fellow travelers, helping students negotiate the sometimes unsettling information and emotions that may surface en route. They also confer with their students as they discern what vehicle—fiction, poetry, nonfiction, or some combination—best suits the task at hand.

    Laura Bowers Foreman offers her students all that she has gleaned from her twenty-five years as a writer. Her writing is informed by a passion for both the environment and social justice at every level, from the personal to the global. Her work has appeared in such publications as The Whitefish Review, About Place Journal, Nature in Legend and Story, Wildlife Conservation Magazine, and The Christian Science Monitor. She also has contributed to the anthologies Memoirs in the Light of Day and The Sweet Breathing of Plants (Farrar, Straus and Giroux), among others.

    Ann Holmes Redding brings 40+-years of teaching experience, wisdom, and compassion to her students. Creative expression as a medium for transformation stands at the center of her life work as a spiritual guide, speaker, and instructor.  Her essays and articles have been published in the Fairacres Chronicle and The Living Pulpit, as well as in scholarly works. She is co-author Out of Darkness into Light: Spiritual Guidance in the Qur’an with Reflections from Jewish and Christian Sources.

      **This workshop will be live streamed via Zoom and is for ages 18+.** 

      Does your book need a love scene? Will readers want and expect it? How do you write a believable love scene that makes readers fall even more in love with your characters? Are love scenes only for romance novels or is there room for love and lust on the pages of mystery novels, sci-fi novels, and fantasy novels? 

      In this class, RITA-winning and USA Today bestselling erotic romance author Tiffany Reisz will instruct explore the art of writing love scenes in novels by reading some of the best (and worst) love scenes in modern fiction and analyzing what works, what doesn’t, and what we can learn from them as authors of adult fiction. This class is for ages 18 and up only.

      Instructor Bio:

      Tiffany Reisz is the USA Today-bestselling author of the Romance Writers of America RITA®-winning Original Sinners series from Harlequin's Mira Books.

      Born in Owensboro, Kentucky, Tiffany graduated from Centre College with a B.A. in English. She began her writing career while a student at Wilmore, Kentucky's Asbury Theological Seminary. After leaving seminary to focus on her fiction, she wrote The Siren, which has sold more than half a million copies worldwide. 

      Tiffany also writes mainstream women's suspense fiction, including The Bourbon Thief (winner of the RT Book Reviews Seal of Excellence Award) and the RITA®-nominated The Night Mark.

      Her erotic fantasy The Red—self-published under the banner 8th Circle Press—was named an NPR Best Book of the Year and a Goodreads Best Romance of the Month. It also received a coveted starred review from Library Journal. 

      Tiffany lives in Louisville, Kentucky with her husband, author Andrew Shaffer, and two cats. The cats are not writers.

      English language is full of rules! We were exposed to them once upon a time. Some rules we got, but others we never quite figured out. Those rules we feel ignorant of or uncertain about undermine our confidence as writers. Have you ever launched a sentence, only to stop because you’re not sure how to complete it correctly? When do I use “whom”? Dang--is it “lay” or “lie”?

      Which rules still stump you? Join us for this painless 4-week course on Wednesday nights. We’ll confirm the rules you know and correct the rules you don’t. Homework will be assigned each week—including some prior to our first class. At each session we’ll review homework together, explore a new topic, and work on a new exercise.

      So come beef up those grammar muscles! Become a more confident writer, and let's have fun with language.
