Happy New Year! We kicked off 2017 with a very successful new member meeting last Thursday evening. Thank you to all of the new members who came out to that, and especially to Jen Parsons for her generosity in sharing her gorgeous essay with us for the workshop. We’re hoping to have new member workshops each month for the next several months so keep an eye out for those (next one is Wednesday, February 22 at 6:30 p.m.) and come check us out!
We also have a new workshop opportunity coming up on Friday, January 27 at 10:30 a.m. in Burlington. Jensen Beach will be joining us to lead a short fiction workshop for the Friday morning crowd. Seats are going fast so RSVP now >
February’s workshop calendar is now posted! We have a full month of regular workshops for you plus some special opportunities.
This is a workshop designed especially for members who have attended 5 or fewer BWW workshops. In this workshop, we’ll go over how the BWW works, our approach to giving feedback, and opportunities to get involved. Then, we’ll workshop a short story or essay together to get a feel for what BWW workshops are like. As with all of our workshops, writers of all skill and experience levels are welcome! RSVP now >
If you’re building your author platform, you’re going to need a good headshot. Come on down to the Burlington Writers Workshop headquarters on Saturday, February 25 for your free 15-minute photo session. Sign up for your time slot now >
