Whether you have a manuscript in progress or simply a vague idea of a story you’d like to write, you’re invited to join this ongoing, once a month three hour workshop to discover the possibilities of your story. Writing exercises from Barbara’s book, 'Kicking in the Wall’ will help silence your inner critic and get you writing immediately, and you'll also have the opportunity to read your work aloud for feedback. Fiction as well as memoir and personal essay will be explored. Enrollment is limited.
