Online : Free Write with Spencer Thurlow

Free-write” can mean a lot of things. With a guided method, Spencer's class will add a little structure so that writers can generate content that will hopefully become first drafts of poems or other works. However, because free writing is simple creative generation, you don’t have to have professional intention or experience to participate. 

Spencer learned how to free-write in the following way while attending The Workshop For Publishing Poets in Boston from 2011-14, a group led by poet Barbara Helfgott-Hyett, whose workshop, over the course of 40 years, produced many volumes of published poetry. Free-write sessions were held in addition to regular classes, and were also a great generative practice during retreats and other intensive classes. 

 Before the free-write, Spencer will  select 10 prompts from a source text. Prompts are short sentences or sentence fragments. A prompt helps avoid the acute writer's block that can arise from intentional creative writing. Often a neutral source is chosen, like a popular magazine. A few recent free-write prompts, from Yankee Magazine, were “First, pickle the onion” and “Car buffs from near and far."

Register in advance for this meeting: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJUldeqvrzwtHdIJctik0P9Mk37KJJPf8Wts

Improvisational Mystery Creation with Jeanette de Beauvoir

Mystery novelist Jeannette de Beauvoir is hosting a hilarious Improvisational Mystery Creation event via Zoom. Audience members will help supply the victim(s), the protagonist, the sidekick, the red herring, and the murderer… and will eventually put the entire story together!
Throughout te event, Jeannette uses these categories to weave in information about the genre and the craft: the difference between a cozy mystery and a procedural, the importance of sense of place, the formation of character, and the plot—which most certainly will include a twist.

In less than 90 minutes you’ll have created a (semi)-coherent story to rival Agatha Christie—but having a lot more fun than Agatha ever did!
