ASTORIA — The Writer’s Guild is announcing a new format for its monthly events.
The Guild still meets at WineKraft on the third Tuesday of the month but will rotate among open mics, their traditional format; writing labs, a chance to bring works in progress for feedback; and Open Writing Lounge, a quiet space to work on your own projects with support from other writers.
In addition, the Guild’s spring workshops are now open for registration. These include:
• Saturday, April 6: Romance Writing Workshop with Julie Cameron: Take a look at the romance industry, and how it weaves through all genres, before diving under the covers for some practice.
• Saturday, May 25: Dreaming Up Poetry with Kimberly O’Bryant: Learn how to access your subconscious and apply dreams, their symbols and poetic imagery to your writing.
• Saturday, June 22: Creative Nonfiction with Marianne Monson: Explore the popular genre of creative nonfiction with writing exercises, discussion and prompts focused on creating art out of truth.
All workshops are held 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Astoria. The cost is $35, with a $10 discount for members. For more details and to register, visit thewritersguild.org/workshops
