Resolve to write more in 2010?

Here's a heads up about our new Prompt workshop starting February 3rd. It would be great to have you or any of your writers join us. I hope you will share this with anyone you know who might be interested.

Prompt: A Write Around Portland Community Workshops

A weekly seminar devoted to generative writing and the transformative power of writing in community. Based on the successful Write Around Portland model, this dynamic workshop incorporates many of our favorite exercises designed to inspire the writing life, including free-writing; group discussion; imagery, character, plot and poetry development; and early-draft revision.

All proceeds from Prompt go directly toward funding Write Around Portland workshops and programs for people affected by HIV/AIDS, veterans living with PTSD, people with mental illness, seniors living on a low income, teen parents and many others.
