The foundation of The Writer’s Studio is your workshop, where you’ll meet biweekly with your mentor and other participants to give and receive feedback on works-in-progress. Participants’ workshop submissions will guide craft discussions, with mentors offering insights into areas of common concern. You’ll develop the ability to think critically about what’s working in a piece of writing, and what isn’t, along with the ability to articulate your thoughts in a supportive manner. These skills are essential to growing as a writer, revising your work, and being a part of the writing community.
