The Monashee Institute is offering a new creative writing workshop as an opportunity for writers at any stage to explore their writing voice in Rossland’s beautiful mountain environment. The workshop will be held October 3 to 5 at the Seven Summits Centre for Learning.
Almeda Glenn Miller and Kate Harrison Whiteside have teamed up to take you from seed to harvest of your writing idea. Including daily, guided walks followed by inspired writing workshop and discussions around the practice of writing, this creative writing weekend is built around a balanced and sustainable approach to your writing.
“We’ve also developed a mentorship and online community as a follow-up to the weekend,” says Miller. “People take writing workshops with all the greatest intentions, but without a community who cares and understands the process, it is difficult to sustain the practice of writing. Kate and I believe we’ve got a way to help writers develop a healthy, ongoing practice of writing and write something others want to read.”
The Monashee Institute, Rossland’s sustainable education enterprise, is supporting the Creative Writing Workshop as part of its mission to develop and market local talent, and attract learners and edu-tourists to learn while they enjoy the area.
The Creative Writing Workshop has been designed for all levels of writers over the age of 18.
The Monashee Institute is also offering a free project development and grant writing workshop and permaculture course. Check the calendar for details at monasheeinstitute.org/events or contact Almeda Glenn Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org or (250)-362-9656.
