Join your fellow local writers for a collegial and useful two-hour program offered virtually to work on personal essays or short memoirs you’d like to get published. Create some of your own essays during the “get-to-the-heart-of-the-story” writing sessions or bring already written essays under 800 words to share with other writers.
Topics covered include: Mining Your Life for Stories. Finding the Universal Truth. Pitching to Editors. Developing a Healthy Relationship with Rejection.
Join us from your home with a beverage, notebook and pen. We will take a short break in the middle of the program. Handout will be provided.
The partially grant-funded writing workshop will be led by local writer Giulietta “Julie” Nardone. Her essays have been published in places such as Psychology Today, Spirituality & Health Magazine, Boston Globe Magazine, Chicken Soup for The Soul, Purple Clover, Christian Science Monitor and broadcast on NPR. She is the author of Feel More Alive! 30 Brilliant Ways To Reignite Your Inner Spark.
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Shrewsbury Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
