Writing Circle, an 8-week class with Andrew Gaboury
Put pen to paper, fingers to keys!
About the Class
Our next 8-week writing class runs 7-9pm (EST), led by Andrew Gaboury.
"This class is a must for anyone who fears the blank page (as I did)." - Writing Circle Participant.
The purpose of this course is simply to put pen to paper, or fingers to keys. You will embrace stream of consciousness and write with abandon to escape the clutches of your inner critic. You will acknowledge and discover your natural creativity. As you define a healthy writing practice, you will explore various writing forms to help widen your creative vision. This class will touch upon fiction, poetry and playwriting. As the course progresses there will be time set aside for sharing and feedback.
Each class will be a combination of writing prompts, a guided “lecture” facilitated by Andrew, group or solo writing time, and sharing circles.
What you will need:
+ Zoom access & a webcam
+ Writing implements
+ Books (of any kind) close by
+ Paper or a notebook (or a napkin or the back of a receipt!)
+ A Google account (the class work will be posted to a Google Classroom site, so this helps facilitate access)

Testimonials from past participants!
"I would say that the Circle helped me to put a pen to a page in all the best ways. With so many different mediums of writing to discover, the 8 weeks provided me the accountability to write! And write some more! That can be the hardest part but with other writers to inspire me, I learned how to develop a consistent writing practice."
"Andrew made it totally comfortable and easy to engage at any level. Strongly recommend."
"Writing circle is a great opportunity to develop your creative writing and to gain feedback from others on your work."
