Our writing workshops cover the following topics: Histories, memoirs, poetry, short stories, novels, journalism, plays, scripts, children's books, blogging, and creative non-fiction.
Local writers will coach, and regional writers will visit. We will also help writers publish.
Carbon County is our focus, so anything local will will be preferred.
WMW will stress multicultural writing - spanning our Greek, Italian, Slavic and Scandinavian roots. The Hispanic and Native-American verbal arts traditions will be included, too.
Workshops can be customized to address your needs. Get several people together who want to learn a certain skill, and we can make it happen.
Open mic events will be organized where creative writers can read their works to friends and strangers.
One of our board members is Carolyn (Winnie) Wood, who taught drama for many years at the Wasatch Academy in Mt Pleasant. A project she will be working on is an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet for children. She has done this project many times with many international students, and even did it in China.
Other drama activities will fill out list of workshops, including dramatic readings and improv. Down the road, we might develop a course for screenwriters, if folks are interested.
