Rock Salt Writers Workshop: Fiction & More (Daytime Event)
Sep 24 @ 9:30 am – Nov 5 @ 10:30 am

You know, that story that always comes back to you, and that starts you thinking, “Hey, I wish I could write it someday. . .” Here at Rock Salt we can help you do exactly what you have always wanted to do — tell your story. And not just tell it. Get the very thing that kept it alive in you to come alive, too. Under the guidance of award-winning novelist, Peter Anderson, you’ll work with others who, just like you, have been wishing or trying to get the story to shape itself on the page. What you get is both satisfaction and achievement, not to mention the lively fun of an evening with others engaged in projects just like yours.

This is a six-week long writers workshop held Tuesday mornings from 9:30 – 11:30 AM.

Workshops are held at Ideation Station led by Dr. Peter Anderson, whose hard-hitting novel of South Africa in the Apartheid era, “The Unspeakable,” has won critical acclaim together with literary awards. Peter has many years’ experience running writers’ workshops, formal and informal, both in South Africa and the United States.

Dancing Catfish: Poetry Writers Workshop (Daytime Event) @ Ideation Station
Oct 3 @ 9:30 am – Nov 7 @ 11:30 am

“Write a poem — any poem!” At Dancing Catfish we do just that. We know that poems come in all shapes and sizes, all sorts of moods, up and down (and sideways), and we get together for a full evening each week to share what we are doing, and help one another figure out what will make our poems bounce, tap dance and sing (if that’s what they want to do), or change the world (if they can). Under the guidance of prize-winning poet Peter Anderson, we aim to figure out together how to make each poem as strong and effective as it can be. Which is exactly what our poems want us to do.

This is a five-week long, poetry writers workshop held Thursday mornings from 9:30 – 11:30 AM

Workshops are held at Ideation Station led by Dr. Peter Anderson, an award-winning poet. Peter has over twenty years’ experience running writers’ workshops, formal and informal, both in South Africa and the United States.
