the Summer Writing Season

In this workshop, we will return to the themes and practices explored in our winter workshop—Nurturing a Daily Writing Practice—but expand our repertoire of ideas to include fresh plans for making the most of the opportunities offered by the summer writing season. Newcomers to the conversation are welcome; veteran workshoppers are also cordially invited to join.
