This interactive workshop—intended for beginning and experienced fiction writers—will explore a few methods you can use to murder your internal critics and increase your own creative powers. Then we’ll explore a range of concrete literary techniques you can apply to write a compelling first paragraph that will inspire you to keep writing. By the end of the workshop, each participant will complete a draft of a first paragraph to be critiqued with nurturing eyes that will foster the confidence (dare we say the joy?) to complete your creative projects.

Fee: Sliding scale $20 - $65. (Scholarships are available. Contact us at for more info.)
