Waterford Township Library, Waterford, MI — January 7, 2020
Have you ever thought about being a writer? Maybe you fantasize about becoming the next Ernest Hemingway or you would just like to pen a few lines of prose to send to a friend. Your goal could be to author something deeply meaningful or type a funny recollection to share. But, you just don’t know how to get started. It’s likely easier than you think, just an investment of a little time and a forum from which to draw help and inspiration from, is all you really need.
Published and unpublished writers are invited to join a community of local writers to provide constructive and supportive critiques of each other’s works and to further discuss the craft of writing.
If you are a wannabe or writer with a limited portfolio and want to get off the right foot with a helping hand, come and attend a meeting to observe and ask questions. The Waterford Writers Workshop meets in the conference room of the Waterford Township Library on the first and third Tuesdays of each month from 6:30 pm-8:30 pm. Writers of all genres are encouraged to share their works with fellow scribes and receive and offer valuable critiques and feedback.
If you have some experience come and share your work, get helpful insights and hone your craft. Each writer should bring 8-10 copies of their work (limit of 6 typewritten, double-spaced pages, of fiction/non-fiction, poetry/ prose, screenplays, etc.) for peer review and discussion. All copies are returned to the writer with edits, constructive critiques, and suggestions by fellow workshop members.
If you are an accomplished author come and impart your acquired wisdom with the group. The goal of the Waterford Writers Workshop is to write, share, and develop works that make us feel. To provoke, evoke, and inspire. To write dangerously. To create. So dust off your journals, polish up your projects, and join us as we celebrate the art of writing. Or just come and check out the scene. Participants must be age 16 or older. Registration is not required.
For any questions or additional information, feel free to contact the workshop’s facilitator, William Teets, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have some fun. Write On!
