Weekly writing workshops hosted by Aubrey Slaterpryce

PPL's Aubrey Slaterpryce will host ongoing workshops structured after the Critical Response Process by Liz Lerman. Members will share their written projects, receive feedback, and engage in various prompts to help start the creative process. Feedback requires no outside work, focusing only on your observations in the moment.
Bring and share your original written work of any kind; poetry, fiction and nonfiction, stage and screenplays, or even a graphic novel you’ve been working on! More information on our blog!
