Green River Writers Workshops: Turning memory into story.
In these memoir writing workshops, we focus on crafting a readable story, guided by the question “Why does a reader put down one book and keep reading another?”
Workshop leaders: Gerald and Loretta Hausman are authors of over 70 books (Gerry’s recent book, The Otter, the Spotted Frog and the Great Flood received rave reviews.) The Hausmans are publishers (Irie Books), editors, and popular presenters. Alice Winston Carney, author of A Cowgirl in Search of a Horse, has published articles in newspapers and magazines and blogs regularly on “Snapshots: Writing your Story.” The Hausmans and Carney started Green River Writer Workshops almost ten years ago, bringing together people who are serious about learning the craft of writing.
What makes our workshops unique, and why people return year after year, is that we push participants to write and expand their skills in an environment that is intimate, supportive, and noncompetitive. We address memoir in many forms, including historical memoir, poetry, and fiction.
Since the start of the Green River Writers Workshops, many participants have published their own books, they have learned how to edit and rewrite their work, and they have found comfort in having friends who appreciate their work.
Writing-intensive program using memoir as a starting point. For experienced and beginning writers. Focus on the crafts of writing and storytelling, and the evolving world of publishing. April's program in partnership with Fredericksburg Art School.
