Eventbrite - Sunday Writing Studio (Oct/CC) October 21

4 - 6 pm
with Genine Lentine

In the City Center Art Lounge

Part workshop, part salon, each Sunday Writing Studio session includes a combination of generative writing, reading, sharing/critiquing work, and discussion of craft and process.

A writing circle provides an ongoing practice of deepening your capacity for listening: to the work on the table, to what others say about your own work, and to what you are drawn to say about the work you read. Critiquing other poets’ work can often give you a sense of your own preoccupations, habits, and predilections before you become aware of them in relation to your own work.

We primarily focus on poetry, but the group often includes prose writers, graphic novelists, and those writing across genres. All are welcome—from beginning to more experienced writers. The studio equally welcomes drop-in or ongoing participation.

Fees: Each Session: $20; $18 current SFZC members; $16 limited income.
