“I was a new writer once, and I still say in many ways I’m
still an apprentice writer — you never stop learning — but it’s
exciting to teach people who are new because it’s a different approach,”
Wood-Barrett said. “It won’t be heavy on the craft. This program will be more
focused on how to get started writing, and how to overcome some of the blocks
The course will be largely exercise-driven, as Wood-Barrett
will be focusing on getting over the hardest part of writing: actually sitting
down and putting the pen to paper.
“The people who have spoken to me about this have said, ‘you
know, what I really need is some assignment,’” Harvey said, adding that
deadlines and accountability will come along with the course.
The hope is that the course will be fun, and ultimately,
participants will walk away with material that they can continue to build on
through the critique groups and participation in other Vicious Circle program
offerings, like the annual Writer in Residence program and Readers and Writers
So far, seven spots have been filled in the new workshop.
“I’m really happy with that, and hopefully we can sell out the 15 spaces,” Harvey said.
