Good Naked: A Reading and Writing Workshop

Good Naked: A Reading and Writing Workshop
Saturday, April 8
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join author and writing teacher Joni B. Cole as she reads from her new release Good Naked: Reflections on How to Write More, Write Better, and Be Happier. Cole, a seasoned workshop leader in MFA programs and writing conferences across the country, will also lead an interactive "Good Naked" workshop that invites audience members to write from a “prompt” and see what happens. Participants will be invited to share aloud what they wrote for verbal responses, insights, and appreciation. These follow-up discussions will not only illuminate ways you can nurture a productive creative process, but also highlight techniques and tips for achieving powerful prose or poetry. Whether you consider yourself a writer, an artist, a wannabe, or an enthusiast for new experiences, this event will be well served by your presence and participation.

"Who says books about writing have to be dull, dry, and pretentious? Author and creative writing instructor Joni B. Cole is here to put the fun back in fundamentals. In Good Naked, she is part teacher, part cheerleader, and part laugh-out-loud humorist. What’s not to love?" -The Writer
