Just Do It: A Creative Writing Workshop

Join Stephentown Art Guild co-founder and professional author Robin Catalano for Just Do It: A Creative Writing Workshop, where we’ll focus on experimenting with writing prompts. We’ll complete a series of short exercises aimed at letting the creative mind wander and tamping down the inner critic. Work can be shared—or not!—and all exercises will be given positive, supportive feedback. This is not a critique workshop, since criticism can be detrimental to the creative process during the earliest stages of a work. Attendees are invited to bring one previously written piece, which can be read in five minutes or less, to share; all other work will be created in class.

The workshop will be held on Saturday, April 13 from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. Stephentown’s Norte Azul Cantina, the workshop’s location and sponsoring host, will also provide a snack buffet for participants. Norte Azul Cantina is located at 15951 NY-22. $60 per person to register. Registrations must be made in advance by going to tinyurl.com/SAGwriting2024 or emailing Louise@braveheartbooks.net
