Wondering how to progress that draft of a story? Stuck in revision? Made a goal to submit a poem this year, but don’t know where to begin? The Writer’s Studio wants to help! Welcome to the first monthly Guided Open Studio!
Join us to work on your personal projects in this monitored open studio on the last Thursday of each month. Beginning writers should either have taken or be currently enrolled in a writer’s studio course or critique group. The monitor will be available to provide guidance and help with problem-solving. Five one-on-one sessions will be offered on a first-come/first-served basis and will be capped at 25 minutes. The last half hour of each Thursday night session will be reserved for communal Q&A. Maximum of 5 people.
• Prerequisite: some introductory-level writing experience.
• Open studio users are expected to be considerate of others during these guided sessions. This is not a private lesson but an open studio. Be prepared to work quietly while waiting for your session (again, first-come/first-served from 5-7 PM with the last half hour reserved for communal Q&A).
• Feel free to bring snacks. Food is allowed in the common area downstairs from the studio classroom, and there is a kitchen in which to store and reheat.
