What you'll learn in this creative writing class:

In this weekly class we'll spend 1.5 hours a session writing to two or three new prompts. This class is meant for the most tenderfoot-ed of fledglings, participants with some workshop experience, or veterans who are looking for something new. Multifaceted prompts are designed to encourage writers of all levels to approach their work through varying perspectives and simply get some words on paper. Group discussion will focus on what techniques each writer is doing well, so they can continue to grow their practice. 

Like all Fledgling courses, this standard course is open to writers interested in all genres. These sessions are meant to create space for free expression in even the busiest of city-dwellers' lives.

Each session follows the same basic timeline beginning with a short introductory prompt intended to grease your wheels. Next, we'll write for 20-30 minutes to the session's longest prompt and follow it with sharing and discussion. Finally, if there's time, participants are given the opportunity to air any grievances from the week on paper to finish up the session (because complaining is almost as cathartic as writing).

Bring a pen, a sheet of paper, and the same mentality you might bring to yoga. Your 1.5 hour session is for the good of you. You may use it however your heart asks you to. Maybe you've wanted to write a short story for as long as you can remember. Maybe you need structure in order to write. Whatever the case, Fledgling will help you soar.

Fledgling Writing Workshops

​End your day with a creative release

Unlike other workshops that require a finished manuscript when you walk in the door, Fledgling is for the writer who isn't sure what to write yet. Fledgling is for the tired 9-5er who lost track of her creative spark. Fledgling is for those afraid of being mocked...
