ANNOUNCING DAYTIME MEMOIR WRITING WORKSHOPS AT TINY T RANCH!!


Hi Y'all,
Okay, exciting news! In addition to the ongoing Tuesday and Thursday Memoir Writing Workshop Series, I am now adding a DAYTIME MEMOIR WRITING WORKSHOP. These will happen Wednesdays at the Tiny T Ranch in Garfield. The format will be the same as the Tuesday/Thursday workshops. We'll talk about writing, then share our writing, and offer feedback. Note: we rarely if ever write while in workshop. However, if you attend the Wednesday series and want to hang out afterwards and do some writing, that is possible.

Dates are below. Email me at spikegillespie@gmail.com to hold your space. Workshop is limited to fifteen participants. Hope you can join us.

Thanks,
Spike

You will receive a detailed email with all the info you need once you sign up
NOTE: Should the ranch be rented out for SXSW we will meet that week in Austin at a central location. I will keep you posted.

Announcing June/July Weekly Memoir Writing Workshops and a Weekend Retreat


Hey Y'all!
I've got a Weekly Memoir Writing Workshop and a Weekend Retreat coming right up. The Memoir Writing Workshop & Retreat are aimed at those of you ready to write down your story for whatever reason. Some folks attend to work on healing past and current trauma. Some are working on memoirs in progress. Some go on to publish books and stage productions in theaters. Some are content with working on private journals. We focus on positive feedback and making a safe space where you will be truly heard. It is such an awesome experience-- the group dynamic is amazing.

The difference between the Workshop and the Retreat: we do very little (if any) in-class writing in workshop. We meet for two hours per session, talk about writing related topics, share our work, and then have feedback. For retreats, we meet for two long days over the course of a weekend, spend many hours writing, share lunch, then share our work.

Several times each year I host a public reading for any interested attendees who would like to partake in sharing their work onstage. Not mandatory, just an optional perk.

Info for the Workshop & Retreat is below. To sign up please email me at spikegillespie@gmail.com
SPACE IS LIMITED. So, like, you know-- don't delay. Really hope to see you.
Thanks!
Spike
