Writing from Real Life

A workshop/playshop on exploring your creative spirit and finding your voice through writing at Easton Mountain

Judah Leblang interview with Jamaicaway Books & Gifts February 12, 2010

In this interactive, hands-on small group experience, we will:

  • Share snapshots of our life journeys as men
  • Read excerpts from established writers—Sedaris, Burroughs, and others and learn from their technique
  • Loosen up your writing muscles through a series of fun exercises
  • Get supportive feedback on your work
  • Develop an action plan to keep writing and to express your creativity in the world
