Writers’ Room Workshops are based on the premise that each person has a unique voice and a story to tell. Pat Schneider, founder of the Amherst Writers & Artists method, says in her book Writing Alone and With Others:
“If you talk to yourself, even in your mind – if you tell stories to your best friend, you can write. If you can tell what happened when you were a kid, if you can allow one other person to “see” what you describe, “hear” the voices you repeat, “feel” the end of your story – you can write. If you daydream or lie awake at night thinking – you can write.”
What we need in order to develop as writers is a space in which to write, a room of one’s own, to quote Virginia Woolf. Writers’ Room Workshops are intended to create that space for every voice to develop.
Spring Practice Group is now forming for five Tuesday evenings, March 25 – April 29th from 6:30 – 9:00 pm at the Medford Library. If you write, or want to write, come join us.
