Promptapalooza 2019

Weekend June 22 to June 23 2019

This fun weekend course promises to stock you with enough fresh material for 10 essays, stories, or even a book to flesh out over the months following the class. In an invigorating, supportive, no-pressure environment, we’ll use tested and effective writing prompts to get some beginnings down on paper for further development when you go home. We’ll have some time to discuss and share some of our work each day and get some feedback on how to proceed with the work we’ve generated, as well as get a list of prompts to generate new material at home. Appropriate for all levels. 10 prompts. 2 days. Let’s do this!


In this workshop we will generate new writing through guided exercises and prompts.
