Craft of Writing Workshop for Writers

Posted by FrenchtownBookshop

Writing a novel, memoir, play or short story? The Craft of Writing is an in-depth series of professionally-led workshops for writers seeking to improve their skills. The group meets every other Tuesday at 6PM, leaving time to stroll and dine in beautiful Frenchtown. The first workshop (“Get Writing, Get Published”) is free of charge.

Your instructor is award-winning novelist and writing mentor Kathryn Craft. Kathryn is a longtime guide and teacher of aspiring writers. She is an adjunct faculty member in Drexel University’s MFA/Creative Writing program, the host of regular writers’ retreats, and served as the 2020 “Guiding Scribe” of the Women’s Fiction Writers Association. Her advice to writers also appears in the book Author in Progress: A No-Holds-Barred Guide to What it Really Takes to Get Published and in her monthly column “Mad Skills” in the blog “Writer UnBoxed.”

The cost of the 7-session series is $175. Students may also attend individual sessions, space permitting, at a fee of $30 per class. Attendance is limited to 12 students.

Books written by Craft of Writing subscribers will be favored for Local Author Spotlights at the Frenchtown Bookshop. Also, Ms. Craft will review and offer comments on the first pages of series subscribers' work.

Each session will be paired with a recommended book on the craft of writing, complementing each class topic.
