Mockingbird Lounge’s creative writing workshop groups are a rare opportunity to experiment with different forms of writing and upgrade your writing skills in a small group environment. Expect to be inspired by new ideas, writing prompts, and like-minded people. Not to mention the locale.
An intimate writing group held once a month where you are guided through writing prompts and techniques. Explore different forms of creative writing including prose, poetry, and life writing. There are opportunities for constructive discussion but this is not a group where you bring along pre-written work for critiquing. The writing happens on the night. Casual and low pressure, you’ll be surprised and pleased at how much you can write in a few short hours in the structured, supportive environment of this group. Suitable for beginners, the time poor, or those who simply like to write and want to learn more about how it’s done.
