The Year-long Workshop to Write Your Novel or Memoir

Silent Writing Thursdays

ANA SECOND DRAFT PART 2:
SILENT WRITING DAYS

12 SILENT WRITING DAYS Every second Thursday (starting October 4th) at Uplands Retreats. (A TOTAL of 36 HOURS OF SILENT WRITING TIME)

All of the participating writers are welcome to write together during the morning or evening time slots.

During the first half hour of each segment, join your fellow writers, check-in on your progress, share successes and frustrations, perhaps share a short excerpt of new work. (This is completely voluntary.)

After the check-in, writers find a comfy spot at Uplands Retreats and work silently. We maintain a no talking policy during these revision sessions. You may stay the maximum time allotted, or leave when it suits you.

The Rewrite Target Completion date is March Break, 2019. (approximately 5 to 6 months after your Substantive Edit)

TIME SLOTS AVAILABLE:

  • MORNINGS: 9:30 TO 1:00
  • EVENINGS: 5:30 TO 9:00

A special note about Managing your time on the Silent Writing Thursdays. We have lots of room outside, including country roads and trails. If you need to take a break here and there during the writing time, go for it. Writers sometimes solve key problems stepping away from the manuscript and taking breaks. Your time here is yours. The only rule is no talking in the writing areas. Conversation is permitted outside the house.

Celebrating our 10th Year!
