Autumn 2022 Creative Writing Group now forming

Tuesday evenings, September 13th to October 25th

Make time for writing!!!
This group will help unlock your creativity. Every TUESDAY EVENING from September 13th until October 25th we will meet on Zoom for 60 minutes of creative writing. Having a set time to meet and write together provides the structure to make this a productive, creative group.

The sessions start at 7:00 pm New York time (4pm West Coast)

The theme of the Autumn 2022 Writers Group is writing extremely short, easy to read stories.

Whether you are writing to fill holes in your current curriculum, to provide more windows & mirrors for your students to see themselves in your classroom library, or simply to add good stories to the language learner experience, come enjoy the support of our writers group!

Every week our intention is to complete a new short story. We start with a prompt and quickly free write to develop the kernel of an idea. Then, sharing our initial ideas in small groups, we help each other build our story ideas, develop unexpected plot twists, and recognize strong themes buried in the initial free write. We’ll end our 60-minute session with a short whole group conversation about what is working in our writing to keep you motivated to continue writing throughout the week. After our group session each writer is encouraged to finish their short story, incorporating ideas generated in small group to make a finished story.

Over the course of our nearly 2 months together I expect that some authors will develop characters and plots that could expand into a full novel. I will be happy, however, if each writer simply creates a set of extremely short, easy to read stories that helps smooth the transition to reading full novels in class. The EXTREMELY short VERY EASY to read short story is the solution!
