Place and Setting Workshop, November 2017

Place and Setting Workshop
November 2017

The November 4th workshop on Place and Setting included a full agenda of mini-lessons, discussion, reading analysis, generative writing exercises in which to create building blocks toward fuller pieces, sharing of prompted work (optional), free writing time, and more.

Private feedback from instructor Lisa Romeo was an additional option.

Place and Setting Workshop held in the Main House on Cedar Ridge Farm in November 2017.

Here is one participant’s feedback:

“The Cedar Ridge Writers Series was set in the perfect place to get inspiration with other dedicated writers at all stages of their careers. Twelve writers form three states learned from two amazing teachers and authors while enjoying the bucolic setting of rural New Jersey. The day was the perfect blend of discussion, instruction, reading, and socializing, and much-needed personal time to write or wander. I work full-time and live just outside of New York City, so a daylong workshop to recharge, listen, learn, and socialize was very invigorating.”
