Time to Write

January 22-24, 2016

Tampa/Brandon, Florida


You know you want to write. There just isn't time. Well now there is!


Or maybe you're stuck. You've started a project, but it isn't going anywhere. Our Time to Write Workshop will not only revive your creative juices, but with the help of a facilitator who has a dozen years experience carefully choosing appropriate writing prompts, you will add pages to your manuscript.


Here's what it's all about:


Friday, 3:00 p.m. Opening exercise. Each writer will have time to briefly discuss his/her project with the group. If you do not have a project, simply discuss the type of writing you usually do. You will write from prompts specifically designed to awaken your creativity in whatever genre or project you are working on. 

Saturday More writing.

There will be time to share, time to sit in small groups and voluntarily ask for "gentle" critique. 

Sunday - Time to write, time to edit.

Closing Program  11:00, lunch at 12:30, then dismissal.


​Price includes lodging (single bed with linens), meals, a campfire, beautiful environment (weather permitting, we will do some writing outdoors).
