The Writing Barn



Workshop Guide: Ashleigh Pedersen

Workshop Details: What stories still move you to laughter or tears? What stories remain untold? What stories do you want your children, and their children, to know or understand? This workshop will provide you the opportunity to read short essays and memoir excerpts, to discuss their craft, and to write down your own personal stories. Writers of all levels will feel supported in their efforts to explore, discuss, and create!

The magical Writing Barn provides an especially inspiring space to meet, with large oak trees, a huge screened in porch, plenty of cool, comfortable indoor space, and a full kitchen.

$240/person. Register via PayPal (writewellaustin@gmail.com) and include name/email address, or email Ashleigh at writewellaustin@gmail.com to pay by check or credit card. Space is limited.

Please bring your preferred writing device. Pens and paper are encouraged in addition to any electronic devices. You are welcome to bring food along with you as well. Tea and light snacks will be provided.
