The Late Show: (Re)starting Your Writing Life at 45+

Introductory | In this generative workshop, we’ll learn the seven crucial steps to (re)entering and maintaining a writing practice at a later stage in life, explore three different genres (fiction, nonfiction, and poetry) through prompts and a few readings, and talk about publishing in this age of shorter attention spans. You’ll come out with a plan and some pieces to edit and send out. You’ll also have fun.
