Monday Night Writers' Group

6:00 pm - 8:00 pm - The Workshop

Get out of your head and into our writer’s group! The fortress of solitude can blind a writer to the magic of inspiration. Or at least, to the helpful perspective of some fellow writers. In this group we will follow a syllabus of works by various writing teachers to better see our work objectively, and to guide inspiration’s hand to our page. We’ll begin our focus with Brooke Berman’s Nine Juicy Weeks to a Wonderfully Imperfect First Draft, the Zen Buddhist perspective of Natalie Goldman’s Writing Down the Bones, and Writing From the Senses – an inspired set of exercises by Laura Deutsch. This group is for professional writers, aspiring writers, and those who have yet dared to put word on paper. All genres and perspectives welcome. 

When: Every Monday, from 6-8

Where: The Head & The Hand Press Writers’ Workshop

2012 Sepviva St, Philadelphia, PA 19125

Cost: This workshop is free for workshop members and $6 per class or $50 for the first nine weeks for non-members. The full course can be purchased in our online store!

He will discuss the history, work, and mechanics of the literary magazine from the vantage point of writers, teachers, and scholars.
