write with d. ellis phelps this spring

Dear Writers:
Happy New Year! I pray this finds you well and happy. I will be facilitating three ongoing writing workshops this spring beginning Jan. 8th.  Following are brief descriptions and links to registration.  The first two are free and the third requires tuition.  All three are on Zoom.  I hope to see you at one or at all three workshops! Also, please share this post with your audience!


1.  The Art of Writing:  poetry, memoir, & creative non-fiction  (Adults, any level)

During each two-hour workshop, we’ll look at writing samples, generate new work based on a facilitator-provided prompt, share our work and give soft feedback.  This is a friendly space for writers with any level of experience.  Sponsored by the Patrick Heath Public Library of Boerne, Texas, the workshop is free but registration is required. Writers may attend any of all of the sessions, but space is limited to ten participants, so claim your seat early! 

Please note:  Dates alternate between the second Saturday afternoon and the second Thursday evening, Jan. 8-June 9, 2022:

2.  Bits & Pieces:  the art of writing memoir (Adults, any level)
Join us as we practice the art of memoir writing. During each two-hour session for six consecutive months, we’ll look at writing samples from published memoirs, access memories through facilitator-provided prompts and writing exercises, and share our work, giving soft feedback. No one else can tell us what it’s like to be you. You must do it. Come on! It will be fun. I promise.   This workshop is being sponsored by the Dripping Springs Community Library.  It is free, but registration is required (see link below). Writers may attend any of all of the sessions, but space is limited to ten participants, so claim your seat early!

3.  wordplay: poems for fun (Adults, some writing experience)Join us as we explore the light-hearted side of poem-making. We’ll use sound, rhythm, rhyme, wit, humor, poetic license, and more to generate new work that is fun to write and fun to read.  In each session, we’ll look at writing samples, write to facilitator-provided prompts, share our work and give soft feedback.  Time will also be given to hear and give feedback for work that is generated by attendees between meetings. Writers must register for and agree to attend all six workshops as this will facilitate a more cohesive, supportive group dynamic. Feel free to contact me with questions!
