Going Places: A Discussion of Momentum

This workshop will focus our attention on momentum. We will consider how authors create momentum in their own work (in poetry & prose), how we might establish momentum in our own writing, and strategies, tricks, and practices to foster momentum in our writing life.

Our time will be spent considering selections from other writers, allowing time for us to write, and sharing successful writing practices:

*The first meeting will be spent discussing readings selected by the instructor. Our discussions will be focused on our observations, keeping in mind the writerly strategies we might apply to our own work.

*At our second meeting participants will have the opportunity to share drafts of work generated from our first session discussions and readings. We will describe our responses so that the author has a sense of the reader’s experience.

*At our third meeting participants will continue to share original work. Discussion will also focus on successful writing practices.

*Our fourth meeting will discuss publication opportunities and the submission process.

The collaborative nature of our course offers writers a space to be heard and provides an opportunity for us to share ideas and work in a productive and safe environment. After the conclusion of our final class, participants are invited to submit a 5-page portfolio of writing and receive feedback from the instructor.

We dedicate our meetings to the wonderful task of reading and writing. We foster one of the most essential elements of the writing and reading life – community.
