We'll be working on some spooky stories, taking inspiration from some fascinating paintings of ghosts and witches.
In these workshops, you work at your own pace and connect with others online in a private Facebook group. You will write from your own timezone and schedule.
“Where to begin? Lorette and Meg are the perfect team. They both are experienced teachers and create a safe environment. The feedback is positive and constructive. I find that whenever I take these workshops (and I hope to do that as often as they are offered), I feel braver and more willing to take risks. I always feel supported in trying new ideas, and styles. When I first started, I was writing only poetry and was hesitant to try microfiction. Now I feel equally comfortable in both. There is always enough choice in the prompts that I feel comfortable-there is something for every taste. And I have been pleasantly surprised to find that some of the choices I made that I thought would be the hardest gave me some of the most creative pieces. The asynchronous aspect of the workshops makes it possible for people from all over can participate. And that is an added benefit--there are different cultures sharing art in the same space. I've met many people in the workshops and continue to communicate with them. I am always thrilled when I read a writer’s piece that grew out of one of our workshops.” Lynne Kemen
