Thursdays with ESWA
Generative writing workshops, craft sessions, readings and more!
Join us! Every Thursday night from 7:30-9 PM on Zoom!
A key scene is an essential building block in any work of fiction. In this session, you'll learn tips and strategies for making the scene you see in your head come alive on the page so that your reader is compelled to keep turning the pages rather than turn out the light. Writing exercises will give class members a hands-on feel for how to add texture, dynamism, and drama to a story. The session also provides practical, hands-on guidance about the rewriting process. An added benefit: giving and receiving critical feedback.
Upcoming ESWA Events!
September 30th! 7-9 PM!
Bay to Ocean Anthology Spotlight
We invite you to join the Eastern Shore Writers Association and connect with the writing community on the inspiring Delmarva Peninsula.
Special Saturday Generative Writing Workshop! Saturday, September 25th, from 2-4 PM EST!
When we invite someone into our home, we don’t make them stand in the doorway and ask them to survey the house from there. We show them in, give them a seat, maybe offer a cup of steaming coffee. What do your guests notice when you head back to the kitchen for a plate of shortbread, or was it pretzels and beer? Do they find stories in your tchotchkes? Maybe they want to look in your medicine cabinet! Similarly, we want our readers to intimately experience the places we write about. Workshop participants will engage in active prompts to create spaces our readers will want to enter. Activities will sharpen our focus on details that resonate with readers when writing about places in our lives or even imaginary places. Readings will include poems that offer novel perspectives on writing about place. You will leave this workshop with new maps to your important places. Jane is a poet, however, in the evaluations at the 2021 Bay to Ocean Conference, prose writers reported discovering important new insights for their work.
