Coshocton Write-On Writers Workshop 2016

Coshocton Write-On Writers Workshop 2016

In early October, I volunteered to help with the Write-On Writers Workshop. I was excited to be able to help this lovely group of people with this year’s event. My job was to run the registration table, share a short piece of my work and help with anything that needed attention. Here are a few photos of the day.

These were taken earlier in the morning as Cristie Merce gave a workshop on an interesting way to approach writing a new story. I was surprised to see how easily it helped me shape a new short story idea.

Can you see the yummy tower of food in the corner? Here’s a close-up.

Write-On Writers Snack Table

It was continually checked and refilled with a variety of delicious snacks. It helped me focus as I could snack whenever I began to feel hungry. Of course, there were plenty of drinks to go around.

After awhile, we split off into our morning workshops and then we all took a break for lunch. (I just went next door to Wix with a few other writers.) When we returned, we separated into our afternoon workshops.

Write-On Writers Workshop Wendy Koile

Author Wendy Koile gave two workshops. The first was ENTICING A PUBLISHER, and the second was RESEARCHING FOR NONFICTION OR HISTORICAL NOVELS. 

Since I’m currently working on getting published in magazines and editing a book for publication, I chose to go to both of her workshops. They were both great. I took a ton of notes, and I can say I learned a lot from her presentations.

Even though I didn’t get a chance to listen in on the other workshops, I was able to sneak away for a few minutes to capture a few photos of the different groups.

Write-On Writers with Mary Ann Sherman

This morning/afternoon workshop, WRITING WITH SUSPENSE, was led by Mary Ann Sherman. It sounded really good, and I had a hard time deciding between it and Wendy’s. (It’s too bad I couldn’t be in two places at once!)

Write-On Workshop Cristie Merce

The final morning/afternoon workshop, WRITING YOUR MEMOIRS, was hosted by Christie Merce. She and her husband were kind enough to step in at the last minute when the original presenter had a last minute emergency.

It was such a good day. Filled with writing techniques, tips, motivation, inspiration and a shared love of literature. This is a yearly event I would suggest to any writer — no matter the skill level. They are such a warm and welcoming community. 🙂

I'd love to hear from you. Click here to leave a reply.
