We currently have two classes to choose from, both on Saturday. One is a continuation of the classes by our founder William Rubel, and the other series is with poet and novelist Conner Bassett. To find out more and book your places, visit our Eventbrite page.
About the Workshop
The Stone Soup Writing Workshop began in March 2020 during the COVID-19-related school closures and shelter-in-place arrangements, and has been running ever since! In every session, the Stone Soup team, a workshop member, or a visiting expert gives a short presentation on a particular topic or theme, and following a short Q&A we all spend half an hour writing something inspired by the week’s presentation. Everyone leaves their sound on, and we feel as though we are in a virtual cafe, writing together in companionable semi-silence. Then, as many participants as we can fit into the time read their work to the group and receive brief feedback. After the Workshop, all participants are welcome to submit the work they wrote during the session to a special Writing Workshop Submissions category, and their writing is published as part of the workshop report on our blog every week. You can find out more–and read some of the amazing work our participants make during each session–on the pages below. Just click the items on the list to read the full posts.
