Writing in the New Year


Are you ready to make the most of the your creativity as we turn the page on 2019?

Please join me for a Writing Workshop that will begin in early January and run for 6-to-8 weeks. We will meet weekly for two hours.

Is it time to breathe life into some characters who have been rambling around in your brain? Or perhaps capture the chapters of your life? Make the most of our introspective season and begin, or expand, your story in a supportive environment.

This class will be a hybrid, as I will include both fiction and non-fiction writers in the group. You will be supported in your writing goals and encouraged to produce new work each week for sharing.

You can expect to receive custom advice for your work, as well as original prompts and exercises to get your creative juices flowing.

All levels of writers, both new and experienced, writing across all genres, are welcome, provided they are motivated and open to a group experience. Feedback will follow an acknowledgement model as opposed  to critique. You will need to adhere to good artistic camaraderie.

Classes will be held in a private setting in Camden, Maine. Please email questions or register at TheVillageScribe@hotmail.com.

I look forward to helping you bring your story to the page!

On the Way to Coney Island by Mark Nepo


I just love this prose poem On the Way to Coney Island  by Mark Nepo that I stumbled upon  in today’s Huffington Post.

Can’t you just see him as a young boy in that kingdom of a dusty basement with the see through stairs? And the last line just slays me!

Nice little writing prompt tucked into the blog post-don’t miss it!

Excited to share it with my Memoir clients tomorrow at the launch of a new workshop.

I know Nepo as a spiritual writer and am familiar with  The Book of Awakening but did not know him as a poet. Now I do and am glad for it. Guess I have some reading to do.

Hope you enjoy.

   A Conversation ~       RedCafe

(original writing prompt created by Teresa Piccari)

Looks inviting huh?

Write about two people sitting here and having a conversation. Who are they? What do they look like? What do they talk about? What do they not talk about? Where did they come from? Where do they go next?

Just like that! Your imagination at work – or play.
