Lauren leads monthly writing workshops in Princeton/Lawrenceville. We meet at the Acacia Restaurant, 2637 Main Street, Lawrenceville, NJ 08648. We begin at 10:00 a.m. and end at 3:00 p.m. Dates for 2017 are: February 25, April 22, September 24 and November 18.

Whether you’re an absolute beginner, or a published professional, you will find supportive, encouraging writers with whom you can share your successes as well as your frustrations (and yes, the writer’s life always has a few of those!). We sharpen our skills and practice together. We critique our work and experiment with new styles. We learn the basics, discover our voices, refine our techniques.
In the morning we have a writing class on varying subjects. We’ll share a fabulous lunch – an opportunity to network and build writing support. The afternoon session is devoted to critiquing. You are encouraged but not required to submit your work for critiquing. (Don’t worry, it’s gentle – all about making the work better. NEVER about tearing anyone down!)
The cost is $85.00, which includes lunch, coffee/tea and soft drinks.
