Writing Craft and Critique—final workshops of 2017

Writers Read offers creative writing workshops in Fallbrook for beginning and seasoned writers, because writing is not for sissies—it’s for everyone!


Writing Craft and Critique—final two workshops of the year


Fallbrook writers group

Writing Craft and Critique is a five-week workshop that blends writing craft with read and critique. To accommodate demand, there will be two workshops, offered at two distinct times (see below).

In Writing Craft and Critique, you will use your experiences—real and imagined—as a platform for practicing the basics of creative writing and improving your writing craft.

Whether fiction or creative nonfiction, you’ll be writing about remembered moments and scenes inspired by writing prompts, while exploring plot, setting, character and dialogue.

You’ll also share your writing projects with the group and learn from each other through guided read and critique.

This workshop is limited to six people.
