A moderated writing community ought to do a few things well. It ought to offer you regular motivation and feedback. And it ought to offer a sense of belonging to offset the painful isolation of practice. Moderation ensures that new exercises are presented every time and that every participant receives as well as offers feedback. The moderator will also introduce the idea and format of helpful/constructive feedback and work with all the participants to use the same.
This practitioner-level workshop is meant for individuals who are mentally prepared to be regular with their writing commitments. That means before signing up please be sure that you have the time that the workshop demands (10 hours/month). The workshop will have regular weekly meetings. It will have a maximum of fifteen (15) members only. Each live conversation will be one hundred and fifty minutes long (2.5 hours) to ensure that each member gets ten minutes to discuss their work.
Think of this workshop-mode course as a purpose-built community for writers to make sure they meet their goals and targets. You might want to complete a novel? Produce consistently for an online writing project or even write a journal regularly? Personal goals deserve to be honoured and the workshop helps you do it.
Writing is not just a medicine, it is a sport. After a while spinning words into threads of language and these threads into fabric of meaning starts being enjoyable. This workshop doesn’t have a bias for any one genre of writing. Fiction or creative non-fiction, the writers in both modes are welcome. Poets might not find the workshop useful in a specific way.
Also please note, the workshop does not discuss the business of writing at all (publishing, publicity, promotion etc) and only discusses the craft of writing. Members who do not bring a manuscript to a meeting can use their time to do an exercise.
The workshop has two kinds of materials attached — motivational/inspirational readings and prompts/exercises. Neither of these are time-bound and can be used whenever you may want to or need to. I look forward to experiencing a healthy sense of community with the participants of this workshop.
