Taught by Harvard writing instructor Elizabeth Soutter, workshops feature writing exercises, sharing work, and discussions.

This is like book group, only we write!  And laugh a lot!  But not at each other, because that would be cruel.

“I took this course thinking, ‘Hey, I’m a good writer, this will be fun.’ — I am astonished by how much I learned, how much fun it was, and how much my writing has improved. And we did laugh a lot, she’s right.”

Workshops run in four-week sessions, $100 per session, held at 195 Hanover Street, Hanover.

Snacks provided. Because everything is better with snacks.

Frequently Asked Questions Not Really Stated as Questions, But “Frequently Expressed Doubts” Just Looks Awkward

I am worried that I will get to workshop and be the worst writer there and everyone will laugh at me.

Everyone is worried about that.   Really.  It’s hard to put yourself out there.  I mean, you have no idea how much I sweated this website you’re reading.

It sounds like a lot of work and I’m afraid I’ll get there and not like it.

Yeah, that could happen.  I mean, I thought I was totally going to be into French cooking, but halfway through my first stack of julienned carrots I was ready to put one through my own eyeball.  So sure, sometimes something turns out not being for you.

But if  you like to read and you like to write, you like to share ideas and you have a sense of humor, you’ll have fun.  Plus, no carrot sticks, so eyeball safety.

I don’t really want to publish, it just sounds like a fun thing to do.

Great!  You’re in!  It is a really fun thing to do.

I really want to publish my play/novel/article/blog/memoirs/short story.  Will this help me?
