Enhance Your Writing

I have often had times where I just thought I can’t come up with anything else. It’s almost like the deer in the headlight look. Sometimes you just need a fresh dose of creativity. I have just the medicine you need. Take a writing workshop!!!

Writing Workshop for Teens with Terra Elan McVoy

Monday, February 4th | 4:30 p.m.

Dates: Mondays, February 4, 11, 18 and 25, from 4:30-6:00 pm; Cost: $275 (Limit 10)
Have you been working on a creative story or project (maybe something for NaNoWriMo?), but haven’t been able to get the feedback you want on it? Now’s your chance! Reading and responding to other writers’ work is one of the best ways to help sharpen your own skills, and in this four-week workshop you’ll do just that, not to mention get feedback on your own piece. Writers ages 12-16 are welcome, so long as you already have written a story, poem collection, or play that is a max of 20 pages.

For registration, please email class instructor Terra Elan McVoy (author of four YA novels, including Pure and Being Friends with Boys) atterramcvoy@gmail.com. Both class will be capped, for the sake of giving everyone proper time, and both classes will meet at Little Shop of Stories.

Adult Writing Workshop with Terra Elan McVoy

Wednesday, February 6th | 6 p.m.

Dates: Wednesdays, February 6, 13, 20, 27 from 6:00-7:45 pm; Cost: $300 (Limit 8)
Reading carefully and critically—watching how another writer constructs his or her story—is one of the best ways to become a better writer yourself. So in this four-week discussion-heavy workshop at Little Shop of Stories in Decatur, GA you’ll share (and get feedback on) one 15-20 page (max) writing sample of your own, plus further sharpen your skills by responding to works of similar length by other class members. Time allowing, we’ll also do a short freewriting exercise every week, just for the continued exercise. By the end of the four-week session you’ll have a clearer sense of where to go next on your current project, improved critiquing and critical reading skills, more thoughts on story form, and maybe a new friend or two, too.

For registration, please email class instructor Terra Elan McVoy (author of four YA novels, including Pure and Being Friends with Boys) atterramcvoy@gmail.com. Both class will be capped, for the sake of giving everyone proper time, and both classes will meet at Little Shop of Stories.
