Have you thought about trying to write prose? Do you want to try with others?

This year’s Havurah Adult Writers Workshop (for Non-Writers!) begins January 14 and continues for the next 7 Thursdays, through March 4.  The workshop is for anyone who wants to explore prose writing – and is NOT a published writer or working on a big writing project. The focus is memoir writing generated through reflection, engaging prompts, discussion and feedback.  While the Jewish experience often comes up in memoir writing in a Jewish community, our focus is the writer’s personal exploration from any perspective. 

Participants develop one piece from the workshop and may choose to read at a culminating Friday Oneg Reading for the Havurah community.  Led by David Kertzner. Group size limited to 8.
 

David Kertzner is a workplace trainer providing remote and onsite English language and communication courses for non-native English speakers - business professionals working in technology fields or more recent immigrants employed in manufacturing facilities.  At Havurah, he has led three memoir writing groups, drawing on 20 years of leading adult learners through supportive, reflective and creative learning experiences. 

This class takes place in Zoom Room Bet. Please see the weekly Hineinu newsletter for the link.
