This prose and scriptwriters workshop will meet online. The workshop has a focus upon overcoming the obstacles to writing about what really matters and what is the most meaningful to oneself.

Some fun and/or challenging exercises will be offered to enable people to develop greater empathy in writing, and to understand how times of deprivation can be transformed with the sympathetic imagination.

Sharing in the workshop will be optional but encouraged. After the first meeting, there will be group workshop critiques possible for any who want to submit (usually shorter works) to a workshop process. Longer works can be shared over several meetings.

There will be also be an online private google group created for this workshop so that people who cannot attend every session can keep up from afar.

There will also be suggested readings from free online resources so that the class may discuss some great writers, if they want to.
