“Prompt!”  Writers Workshop

Join Us. Saturday, August 18, 2 – 4pm
Nathanial Hawthorne House, Hawthorne Rd. Raymond, ME

As a verb, to prompt means to cue to get going. As a noun, a writing prompt is a suggestion of what to write about. In this workshop, “Prompt!” will be both. Come enjoy what happens when a single prompt activates the ideas and stories of multiple people. We will have time for 4 -6 prompts. This fun and inspiring workshop with Diana Altman was so enjoyed last summer, we had to have her back!!

Participant feedback included:

“Thanks! This really gave my writing the jumpstart it needed!”…. “I’m not even a writer, but this workshop really sparked my creativity!”…. “I only came to support my friend, but I had such a good time!” …..“I was so surprised by what we were all writing!”

Diana is an independent film historian and fiction writer, whose work has appeared in the NY Times, American Heritage, Forbes Woman, Story Quarterly and other places. She is the author of the novel, Theda Bara’s Tent and the non-fiction film history Hollywood East: Louis B. Mayer and the Origins of the Studio System. A short story, “In The Wrong Skin”, is in the Summer, 2018 issue of The Notre Dame Review and her forthcoming novel “We Never Told” is to be published in the Spring of 2019.
