How do you write a new draft that sings? This workshop focuses on stretching ourselves and taking our prose writing to a higher level with specially designed exercises regarding the areas of language and pacing. Please bring along five or six pages of a current draft. You will need two copies.

Also bring something to write with, either pen and paper or a device.
