“Everyone is a Writer” with Sharon Isreal

Writers in the Mountains (WIM) announces Everyone Is A Writer with Sharon Israel, a six-week long workshop, running from July 6 to August 17, 2019 (skipping July 27). The class will be held Saturdays from 10 am to 12 noon at Fairview Library in Margaretville, NY.

Never written before?  Know you have a writer’s soul but haven’t yet been able to put words to paper and reach your creative core?  Are you already a writer but need to commune more deeply with your inner voice?

Poet Sharon Israel will conduct a six-week workshop that will help you dive deep and write through word, object, visual and sound-based prompts. Your words will flow, your voice and craft will grow each week as you write and have the opportunity to share and discuss your work in a safe environment that will nurture and protect the wildness and truth that you unleash.  Each workshop will provide positive commentary on newly created work and writers will also have the opportunity to bring in written work for review and discussion, again in a safe and supportive environment. Know that a workshop experience should make you want to write more and more, not less and less.

Sharon Israel hosts the radio program Planet Poet-Words in Space, an edition of The Writer’s Voice program on WIOX 91.3 FM in Roxbury, New York. As a poet and soprano, Sharon collaborates with composer Robert Cucinotta on works for voice, live instruments, and electronics and has premiered several of his works in New York. She was an early recipient of Brooklyn College’s Leonard Hecht Poetry Explication Award.  Her poem “Melodrama at the Biograph” was nominated for Sundress Publication’s “2016 Best of the Net” and her debut chapbook Voice Lesson was published by Post Traumatic Press in 2017. Sharon is certified in the Amherst Writers & Artists (AWA) method.
