The Adult Fiction Writers’ Workshop offers you the chance to connect with like-minded individuals, learn from an experienced author, and grow as a writer. Whether you’re seeking to improve your skills, gain inspiration, or simply share your love for fiction, this workshop is the perfect place to do so.

  • Writing Prompts: Overcome writer’s block and ignite your creativity with engaging writing prompts. These exercises will help you explore new ideas and expand your writing horizons.
  • Feedback on Stories: Share your work with the group and receive valuable feedback. Constructive critiques from your peers can be a game-changer in your writing journey.
  • Open to All: The workshop is open to any genre writing and any experience level. Whether you’re into mystery, romance, science fiction, or any other genre, you’ll find a welcoming space here. And all experience levels are encouraged to participate!
