If you’d like to produce good work and publish or need professional support through the process of drafting, revising, and submitting a piece from start-to-finish, this is the workshop for you. Through writing exercises, we’ll create new work; through group feedback sessions and revision, we’ll polish and submit it. This open genre course empowers participants with an understanding of the fundamental process of being a writer so that they can repeat it on their own.

In partnership with the Curtain Up Cancer Foundation, Gemini Ink offers a free two-day storytelling workshop for cancer survivors, their family, and friends.

In this four-part series of experiential workshops, we will explore how taking on a Citizen Science project in nature can deepen one’s writing while making a real contribution to science. Conversely, we will explore what special traits a creative writer brings to the pursuit of Citizen Science.

Writers are invited to map their personal journey on the page. Our goals will include the development of a consistent writing practice, building tools that support this daily work, taking on new challenges and prompts, and allowing ourselves to trust our own instincts with our work.

For students who took Tina’s “Go Small or Go Home” microfiction workshop, and for anyone who wants to experience writing microfiction. We’ll look at masters of short-form writing, as well as prose poems and narrative poets, who bring us to the action quickly and hold us there with carefully honed, emotive language and images that resonate. Students will leave with four drafts of stories and plenty of ideas to generate new pieces.

From Hesiod to Patricia Smith to Billy-Ray Belcourt to Ocean Vuong, we’ll interrogate what it means to be a body, to belong, to be scrutinized geographies, and to inhabit the late-capitalist American landscape. Our poems will excavate and attempt to envision what it means to be stewards of the land while also playing a role in the presumed purveyance of justice.

This is a free peer-driven workshop facilitated by Gemini Ink volunteers Dario Beniquez and John McLennon—held the last Monday of every month. Bring 6-10 copies of your work to share. Open to all writers.
