Write Saturday is a full day of inspired writing.
We follow the writing practice described in The Workshop.
The full day (5-6 hours) gives writers extended writing and response times. The day has 3-4 writing and response times. The longer writing times allows writers to relax and become comfortable with letting their words surprise them.
Write Saturday is a great way to experience a wVw workshop for the first time. If a busy schedule prevents you from committing to regular writing practice or one of wVw weekly workshop series, then Write Saturday maybe the right choice for you.
Writers who attend Write Saturdays become eligible to substitute for registered writers in weekly workshop series and to become members of the wVw online community.
wVw invites indivduals or groups to host a Write Saturday:
- provide a suitable location for 8-10 writers to meet and write comfortably
- provide a continental breakfast and afternoon snack
- provide facilities for writers to eat individual lunches or share in a communal "pot luck" lunch
- invite friends and fellow writers to register for Write Saturday
Write Saturday may be hosted by individuals or groups in the Hudson Valley region or elsewhere. Individual hosts are not charged a registration fee. Groups, that gurantee 8-10 writers, receive a discount on total registration fees, ie. fees that would be paid if writers registered individually.
Write Saturday can be designed to meet specific writing needs of a group, such as: a particular genre, eg. poetry, memoir, fiction; or a theme, eg. women's issues, religious or spiritual practice.
