My New Project

If you follow my Write Through It blog or listen to me blather on Facebook, you already know about this, but just in case . . .

I’ve finally got access to a (wonderful) space to do writers’ workshops in, it’s almost all set up, and my first offerings are coming up soon, like next week and the week following. The first one, offered on May 12 or May 15, is Microsoft Word for Writers. It’ll focus on Word’s Track Changes feature, which really is indispensable for writers and which too many writers are intimidated by. The second, offered on May 19 or May 22, is Effective Letters to the Editor.

Each workshop will last about two hours, and for this trial run there’ll be no charge.

Here’s the announcement, with sign-up info:

I have ideas for other stand-alone workshops, and welcome your suggestions, but part of my plan is to offer two ongoing groups. One will be aimed at writers who want feedback on their works in progress (and want to offer feedback to other writers), both fiction and nonfiction. The other will focus more on getting the words flowing, with freewriting in class, reading aloud, and short weekly assignments. If you’re interested in either one, let me know!

Here’s what this very cool space looks like:

    Dear Susanna, it looks like your workshops are all in person. the space you have looks so inviting. I would be glad to join you and am only able to participate in these type of events virtually. Good luck on your efforts. You are offering really valuable information. *Marjorie Turner Hollman* *Finding Easy Walks Wherever You Are* *Freelance Writer/Author/Editor* Bellingham, MA 02019 508-613-6541

    • Marjorie, I’m seriously considering going hybrid eventually. I’ve been to several hybrid meetings lately in rooms about this size, and all it takes is a large monitor and a Zoom account. I’ve already got the Zoom account, and once I pay off the sofa and a recent auto repair bill, I’ll start looking at monitors.
