Writing Workshop With Liz Matthews

Craft Your Story: A Writing Workshop Sponsored by the Nantucket Lightship Basket Museum

Do you have a story to tell? Join our three-day writing workshop and learn how to transform your ideas or experiences into stories and essays. Together, we’ll use unique writing prompts to uncover stories that will resonate. The workshop will provide a solid foundation for writing scenes by looking at character, plot, and setting, as well as explore voice and metaphor for those looking to deepen their work. With meditation and daily writing exercises, you’ll leave with a calm mind and notebook full of beginnings. Writers of all ages, genres, and levels welcome.

Workshop meets Wednesday, September 13th through Friday, September 15th, 9 am to 12 pm. $225
