Learn. Produce. Share. Belong. 

Aspiring and experienced writers join workshops at Shape & Flow for posterity, publication and/or personal growth. They discover quickly the value of the workshop process. Writers come to write, and they do. What most don't expect is the community that forms.

 Most writers have in common four desires— to
learn the writing craft, produce new work, share stories with an audience and belong to a writing community. This summer, choose from a menu of opportunities to help meet all of these writerly needs:

  • Monday, June 4—Six-week workshop begins
  • Sunday, June 24—Writing retreat at Valaterra in LaGrange 
  • Saturday, June 30—Seminar on building a writing platform
  • Wednesday, July 11—Six-week workshop begins
  • Tuesday, July 17—Six-week workshop begins

In a workshop at Shape & Flow, you will meet 2.5 hours for six sessions. Each week, you will respond to timed prompts at home and share or comment upon peer writing within the workshop.  You'll learn to read as a writer, experiment with form and voice, use effective dialogue credibly and describe your memories in multi-sensory ways. Our specific schedule is set at the beginning of each six-week session to ensure that everyone will be able to attend most workshops. There is always a make-up session.

Here is the summer schedule for six-week workshops.  All are $175; preregistration required.

Please e-mail Kimberly with inquiries or to request enrollment.

Build a Writing Platform: Create a niche in the changing world of publishing.

A seminar with author David Dominé, Saturday, June 30, 9:30 to 11:30  at  Shape & Flow Studio 123 at, Mellwood Arts Center
With a bit of entrepreneurial spirit, and a focus on the "little picture," writers can market their work to target audiences, enhance name recognition, and make money from book-related endeavors. Budding writers can tailor projects to fit current trends and needs in the industry. Niche marketing—the identifying and reaching out directly to groups of potential readers—can unlock many doors in today’s changing world of publishing. Workshop participants will learn ways to build a writing platform and create a niche for their compositions.  
Come with questions.  
Leave with a plan!
