Panning for Gold.

One month workshop to pan for, then polish your writing. The first and third nights will be spent on digging-deep timed writing exercises with the intention of spurning new and raw ideas for both work in progress, and to see what other alloys may be mined from your pen. But you don’t want to just take home that notebook filled with fresh ideas and stick it on the shelf, so the second and fourth nights will be spent critiquing work you’ve polished during the intervening week. This intensive workshop will lead you to new places and help you brush the dust off any work that wants to be brought back out into the light. All levels are welcome.
